Fossil hunt

Fossil hunt

Due to construction works, the fossil hunt will be unavailable until autumn 2022. We ask for your understanding.

In a geologist’s outfit, children are on the lookout for plants and animals of the past which have been preseved inside the rock. After a short introduction, the would be geologists don their protective equipment and their hammers and head for our stock of limestone rock extracted from a nearby quarry.
The tour is outside and lasts 2 hours for a maximum of 18 children per group. For larger groups, a second tour will have to be added.
The tour takes place behind the museum building inside a former open pit mine (start at the MNM). Please wear clothes appropriate for the weather and hiking boots.

Reservation is mandatory at least 48 hours in advance via our online booking form. You can freely choose the timing and language of your tour.
