I mean, like leafing through a giant history book that traces tells of when this mountain was inhabited by fishes and marine reptiles disappeared for millions of years. A unique place in the world. Fossil Museum has precisely this history through original artifacts or casts of the fossils found here over the years and studied scientificamtne from the University of Zurich and Milan.
