Archaeological and Paleontological Museum

Il museo PARC è dotato di un ampio laboratorio didattico e offre un’ampia scelta di attività per le scuole e famiglie

Il museo PARC, Paleo Archeo Centro, è un museo di nuova concezione, dinamico e strettamente legato al territorio che lo circonda. Un luogo per la comprensione dei fenomeni paleontologici e archeologici, della loro importanza nella nostra formazione culturale e il loro impiego nella vita pratica. L’educazione, la collaborazione con le scuole e l’Università, l’attività di laboratorio: sono tutti obiettivi fondamentali dell’attività museale del P.AR.C.

Il museo PARC è suddiviso in tre sezioni:

  • Paleontologica – Con i fossili del territorio
  • Archeologica – Con la riproduzione del Pozzo Nuragico
  • Didattica – Laboratorio didattico per scuole e famiglie

Sezione Paleontologica del museo

Sala paleontologica PARC Genoni

Sala paleontologica PARC Genoni

Nella sezione paleontologica del museo PARC vengono illustrate le nozioni generali di paleontologia e di geologia, necessarie per la conoscenza della storia della terra. In questa sezione è esposta la collezione dei fossili del territorio. Tutti i pezzi sono restaurati e classificati dal Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra di Cagliari e dalla Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici di Sassari e Nuoro.

Il percorso paleontologico ha inizio davanti a due blocchi di arenaria ricchissimi di ricci di mare: Clypeaster dalla tipica forma discoidale a campana, Scutelle e Parascutelle, sempre ricci di mare, ma con la forma discoidale appiattita, e conchiglie di bivalvi.
L’introduzione all’esposizione dei fossili è raccontata da un pannello esplicativo sui meccanismi di fossilizzazione corredato da esempi illustrati nella vetrina adiacente.
Proseguendo si arriva alla gigantografia che ritrae il Geosito di Duidduru, affiancata da un diorama sulla vita degli organismi che oggi rinveniamo allo stato fossile. Le vetrine sono ordinate per famiglie e una piccola sezione litologica illustra le rocce più comuni che possiamo trovare in natura.
