Palaeontological Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Located underground in green Park-e Sangi, about 500m east of Shohada Sq, the Palaeontological Museum is the passion and life’s work of local mountaineer Mohsen Tajrobekar. Mohsen has collected a stunning array of fossils from the mountains around Kerman and his finds have caused scientists to re-assess the origins of some present-day species. They include a perfectly petrified fish believed to be 530 million years old.
