Fossils: Other Montacutain heritage

Since the summer of 2023, the rural museum has taken its visitors on a journey to the Mesozoic era thanks to a most surprising collection of fossils. Imagine yourself, a few million years ago, at the time of the Diaceratherium lemanense (rhinoceros), Palaelodus ambiguus (Flemish), Diplocynodon rateli (crocodile) in Montaigu-Le-Blin…

It is thanks to Rhinopolis and the Natural History Museum of Paris that this exhibition was possible. They allowed the museum to develop an atypical and attractive display, offering a wide range of fossils found at Montaigu-Le-Blin.
