For those who wish to see the real thing, there are numerous photographs and videos explaining the geological phenomena on site.
From the Paleolithic to the Gallo-Roman period, a collection of fossils, flints and pottery are on display. Visitors cannot miss the cast of a Paleotherium skeleton (38 million years old), a fossil mammal extracted from the Mormoiron quarries in 1904. It is one of the few to have been found complete to date.
The museum is part of a rich architectural and natural heritage. You can also continue your visit, thanks to an orientation trail, "the sands of Mormoiron".
