This exhibition will introduce you to the natural exhibits of rocks of the southwestern region. Each mineral has a so-called birth certificate, which specifies the type of rock and its incidence. The dominant feature of the complex is undoubtedly a gazebo that looks like a prehistoric lizard. You can get some promotional materials, tourist post stamps and commemorative stamps in an infocenter on the square. The exhibition is open throughout the year.
