  • A small but great museum! we visited with friends with children and everyone was happy! The paleontological history of the area is fascinating and the explanations and videos and samples provided give...  more »
  • The exhibition is usually behind glass with a lot of text in Italian. You can borrow a brochure in German, which is built according to the showcases, not 1:1. For children, there is a cool animated film as an explanation for the origin of fossils. Otherwise there is nothing where the children themselves can try something or lend a hand. The building is very aesthetically pleasing and the staff very friendly and helpful. The family price is CHF 25, children under 6 are free.

  • This Fossilen-Museum located in the village of Meride, is definitely worth a visit. The building (rebuilt according to designs by Mario Botta) is worth a visit alone. Good room and topic layout. Children are invited with the use of tablets for dipping in times long past. The many interesting exhibits provide a good insight into the special geology of the region of Monte San Giorgio. The staff is very friendly and helpful, thank you. Important: The parking is located in front of the entrance of the village.

  • Very impressive fossils and nicely made small museum.
  • Nice museum! great architecture 👍🏻
  • Interesting treasure trove of fossils from Monte San Giorgio Unesco World Heritage site, designed by Mario Botta. Well made and interesting interactive media, beautiful marble section of Arzo. The country that hosts the Museum (Meride) is very distinctive and is certainly to be visited
