The Fossilarium invites you to time-travel. Discover the fascinating world of fossils and the process of fossilization. The rich local collection presents each living creature complete with its organs and reconstituted appearance in 3D animation. Reproductions of giant fossils, games of deduction and handling specimens are all part of the experience. Go on guided excursions to find your own fossils and contribute to research.
