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.
Dinosaurs are probably the most famous extinct group of animals, but perhaps also the most misunderstood.
Whereas in popular culture, they are usually portrayed as ruthless killing machines this exhibition takes a look behind the facade of big teeth and bones.
See how the dinosaurs lived and functioned as the animals they were. Even the biggest dinosaur started life in an egg not larger than a handball.
Newly hatched, it was totally dependent on the care and protection of its parents.
