Over 11,000 items, including an exceptional collection of invertebrate fossils, await you to narrate the history of the Dolomites and their incalculable geological value.

Founded in 1899, the Geological Museum of the Dolomites in Predazzo offers insight into these UNESCO world heritage mountains. It is home to over 11,000 artefacts, with a focus on the geology of the Dolomites and, in particular, the Fiemme and Fassa Valleys. Among these is Italy’s richest collection of invertebrate fossils from the Middle Triassic reefs.

Across two floors, featuring interactive exhibits and fascinating educational materials, you can explore the history and characteristics of the local mountains, looking at their unique features and how they compare to surrounding groups such as the Lagorai, the Catinaccio, the Sella, the Marmolada and the Monzoni. Be sure not to miss the Dos Capèl Geotrail, an outdoor itinerary to enhance your visit to the museum during the summer months.
