Highlight of the exhibition are fossils from Monte San Giorgio in south Ticino. This famous discovery site was pronounced a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. Here, marine reptiles and fish are very well preserved and particularly valuable to the scientific community. Some of the reptiles are up to 3.80 meters long and, owing to their meandering movement, compared with the modern-day seal.
In addition to these Ticino finds, fossils from the area around Zurich and from North America are also on display. Models and color illustrations are provided to demonstrate how the fossils would have appeared as living creatures.
