Useful information

Opening hours



Not far from an ongoing excavation site, this museum is devoted to Ice Age mammal fossils, such as saber-toothed cats and mammoths. The grounds and park around the museum are spacious and provide ample space for children to run about without risking getting bogged down like the mammoths at the entrance!
