At Geomuseum Faxe we take you back millions of years. To mass death and the return of life.
Geomuseum Faxe sits on the edge of Faxe Limestone Quarry, where fossiles in the limestone tells of millions of years of evolution.
252 million years ago, life on Earth was dominated by extraordinary creatures – Permian Monsters.
The Permian era ended with a mass extinction that destroyed 90 % of all life and paved the way for the Earth’s next great rulers, the dinosaurs.
Meet the ancestors of the dinosaurs from this mysterious time period in our fascinating and family-friendly exhibition.
It is the first time this fantastic exhibition can be seen in Denmark.
Come and experience full-size models, skeletons and castings of fossils.
You can see the terrible saber-toothed predators of the past, huge dragonflies, and bizarre-looking sharks.
