The aim is to facilitate a first-hand experience in the field outside the usual museum environment.
During the recent expansion and renovation works carried out by the Technical Division (DIVTEC) of the Jura Training and Education Centre (CEJEF), dinosaur footprints were unearthed in Porrentruy. The palaeontological heritage site highlights no fewer than 100 dinosaur footprints, including those of a fearsome carnivorous theropod known as Allosaurus. Where relics of the past and technological innovation come together, two clocks allow visitors to better understand geological time (millions of years) by comparing it to a more precise measurement of time (milliseconds) next to life-size artist renderings of dinosaurs. Treat yourself to a timeless experience and explore the footprints in the evening. Access is free of charge 24/7.
