Monte di Malo
Scholars and lovers of palaeontology find in Monte di Malo a unique case of bedrock rich in fossils, the "Priabonian Stratotype" (so named after the town of Priabona), formed in the upper Eocene period, between 38 and 34 million years ago.
Fossils tell of a distant and mysterious past, and allow you to discover how the world was long before man came along. The museum becomes a place of encounter with the traces of the earliest forms of animal and plant life, and with the findings, which have been bearing witness to the presence and activities of man in the Agno Valley since prehistoric times.
Explore what lies beneath the surface of the earth and discover a world full of life and evidence of the distant past, in the subsoil among stalactites, cave bears and mysterious tunnels, as they appeared to early explorers.
Do scientists play? Or do you become a scientist by playing? What is certain, is that the Science Games Museum guarantees plenty of fun with fascinating discoveries of physics, all to be experienced personally in a workshop designed for children, however interesting also for adults.
A short walk from the Upper Castle of Marostica, the Ornithological Museum is dedicated to the breeding birds of the province of Vicenza and to the art of falconry. In a spectacular natural amphitheatre, on the backdrop of the Venetian Pre-Alps, flight demonstrations of these majestic animals take place, with theme days and trips to discover the world of birds.
