Perfect trip for the whole family, especially on a rainy day. It's a small museum, but it's interactive and thanks to the fossils and dinosaurs kids will get a kick out of it too.

Small, yet quite a good collection and reconstruction of items. Very informative ..worth a visit ! They also sell at a very nominal price some natural stones and fossils .

Small but well preserved museum. Very quiet when we visited and not sure it was really worth the 2 euros entrance fee..
