Each year, MEF offers different opportunities to be part of the “behind the scenes” of its exhibits.
These special tours are a fascinating experience and have been enjoyed by all audiences, from young children to foreign diplomats!
WHY SPECIAL VISITS ARE OFFERED?
MEF displays are the result of extensive work carried out by scientists and professional technical team of the Museum. Since they come from field trips in country sides, fossils can spend a long time in laboratories, while they are cleaned and packaged for study and -in some cases- for being part of the exhibit displays.
This kind of technical work is often unnoticed, that is why MEF has a distinctive feature: a large window display communicates the exhibition with fossil preparation labs.
In this sort of reality show, visitors might see a technician cleaning a fossil under or perhaps a pair of scientists, on a heated discussion about the vertebrae of a large dinosaur.
