The building is an interesting one which was set up with galleries for exhibits and a large open area with many cabinets clearly showing the specimens. The fossils are organised chronologically with clear information on the time periods. I studied geology 50 years ago and...More

My husband and I visited this museum because we both love fossils and minerals. This museum has a few dinosaur related displays, but its strength is in fossils from older eras: lots of trilobites, crinoids, brachiopods, carboniferous plants, etc. Plus as other reviews say, the...More

Huge and well described exhibits (Spanish) Fossils, Minerals, Gems, all in large walk around display cases, is really interesting, great for kids and building itself a knockout.

This is a rather large museum showing rocks, minerals, and fossils from around the world. The best part is that this museum is free and the worst part is no information provided in English. Only worth going if this is something you are interested in.
