Overview

The museum houses around a thousand exhibits, many of which have been found in Aragon during the archaeological excavations which began in 1983, while others come from the the University of Zaragoza's own collection. Artefacts are displayed according to their geological age and palaeontological groupings. The exhibition includes an explanation of human evolution which combines posters and exhibits in display cases. The museum was inaugurated in 1985 and is in the Geology Department of the main campus of Zaragoza University. Guided visits are primarily for schoolchildren, given the didactic nature of the collection. Admission is free. Some Parts of the place are closed for renovation as of now.
