  • Super nice museum with a great collection of fossils. I was in shock with some of the exhibits. Super cool. We got a super friendly guide tour. the exhibition is super well organised and a learned a lot of the evolutionary history of the region.
  • An archeological/geology musuem with a wide display of fossils. I loved the fact that these fossils were well preserved and told us the story of the past without speaking.
