Very rich collection of fossils from the area. Some items are really impressive with beautifully "preserved" specimens. No dinosaurs, but a lot of smaller creatures and flora.

I have a 9 year old son who loves dinosaurs, so this was right up his alley. We spent about an hour perusing the museum and reading all about the various fish fossils. The museum was two floors, but not large. We had the place to ourselves so we were able to wander around and really see everything. It was worth the 5 euro to see it.

Unfortunately, we arrived too late to do the fossil hunt. That was the one negative of our day.

The drive up through the mountains was beautiful and a bit scary at times. We enjoyed the drive almost as much as the museum, but a large vehicle would be hard to maneuver through the hairpin curves.
