Museo de Paleontología information
Cuenca’s former Ars Nature has been transformed into a streamlined paleontological museum anchored by its appropriately kid-friendly dinosaur exhibition (‘Tierra de Dinosaurios’). Spacious modern galleries are decorated with locally found fossils and mock-ups of humongous Jurassic reptiles. The revived museum, which inhabits a slick super-modern building in landscaped grounds, is going through a phased re-opening that should be complete by late 2016. Outdoor exhibits are promised, as well as a virtual aquarium.
