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.

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
Nice geo-paleontological museum on the fossils of monte San Giorgio
Very clear explanations very comfortable place even for people with reduced mobility there is a lift. Can't recommend this museum more free entry for holders of the Master card of the Raiffeisen
