At MEF, there is always something new!


In addition to the permanent exhibition and public use areas (Dinoshop, Feruglio Café) the museum develops programs and activities for all ages.


Explorers in Pyjamas, Children's Day, Museums Day, Mef Invites, Scientific and Concert Café, are some of the activities taking place throughout the year.







The Collection is the heart of the museum. Once treated in technical laboratories, fossils are cataloged and stored.


MEF Collection set a precedent in technology and innovation in museums throughout Latin America: all the fossil material is classified and arranged in large devices that move on rails and were manufactured with a prepared structure to withstand extreme weight and still be easy to handle by anyone.

The collection manager carries on a digital record of all pieces, and is responsible for its maintenance and preservation.
