A visit to the Paleontological Museum of Montevarchi is a unique experience for both young and old. It’s a chance to discover a world that has remained hidden for millennia, but still fascinates. It’s a real blast into the past, taking you back millions of years, 3 million years in fact.
You can admire rare treasures, such as the mastodonic elephants (Mammuthus meridionalis), the giant hyenas (Pachycrocuta brevirostris), predators that were similar to the saber-toothed tigers (Homotherium crenatidens) and the first examples of the remains of the Canis Etruscus, a kind of wolf that hunted in the savannahs of the Valdarno area.
This is a must-see for families, schools groups and anyone who loves ancient history.
