The museum is divided into two halls; the first one houses glass-cases devoted to palaeobotany and invertebrates (from Protozoa to Metazoa), a glass-case with marks of tetrapods (amphibians and reptiles living 250 milion years ago) coming from the Dolomites, and other evidences on different palaeontology topics. The second hall (devoted to vertebrates) houses Pleistocene mammalian skeletons from Latium. Remarkable exhibits: four skeletons of dwarf elephants from Spingallo (Syracuse, Italy)) and four skeletons of Megaceros ropalophorus from Crete.
