IN SEARCH OF DINOSAURS

An interactive game and the museum section devoted to palaeontology allow the participants to become the protagonists of the history of life on earth, from the very first single cell organisms to man, demonstrated not only by the traces of fossil organisms from millions of years ago but also the skeletons of a dinosaur and huge crocodile. At the end each participant will make their own plaster cast of the fossils they have studied.
