  • Very nice Museum and well run for fans of the genre. Also suitable for younger kids but in my opinion at least from 6 years up. I feel absolutely recommend to spend some pleasant time and affected families.

  • I don't know anything about paleontology, except that the San Giorgio mount figure on the list of UNESCO World Heritage for the importance of fossils of various and overlapping eras geolooiche. 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. The whole thing is well told through adiovisivi and educational panels in new, modern equipment due to the great architect Mario Botta. Exhibition and educational criteria used, this museum is very suitable for school groups and families with children.

  • Magnificent Museum, in Italian but possibility of having a paper guide or audio explanations in french and others. Very well documented, beautiful explanatory films. The receptionist greeted us 20 minutes before closing and gave us 1 hour more, she also controlled until well seen. In short, loved it!
