The Paléospace, Musée de France, is the outcome of a wonderful project that highlights the heritage of Villers-sur-Mer.

The museum is ideally situated in a 100-ha park, near the shoreline marshes, a few steps from the beach and the famous Vaches Noires cliffs.

Be enchanted by rich collections, a preserved environment, high-quality services and an irreproachable reception.

The origins of the Paléospace l’Odyssée

Imagine the world 160 million years ago… The Jurassic Sea covered Normandy and later formed the Vaches Noires cliffs of Villers-sur-Mer.

Many fossils that testify to this ancient period were found here such as corals, ammonites, crocodiles, sea reptiles and dinosaurs.

Among the great sea reptiles, discover Anna, an exceptional exemplar of Ichthyosaur.
