This story begun in 1967, when a 10-million-year-old skull fragment was found. Within the area of the former mine, we started planning the new exhibition site in 2012. A disability-friendly ramp system connects the visitor centre with the main building, which showcases the already excavated part of the palaeontological site, and protects the rest. A study trail, several lookouts, and resting points were realized, all made of pigmented concrete referring to the colour of iron ore.
