The moler emerged about 55 million years ago at the bottom of a big ocean. The ocean also covered the area, in which Mors and Fur are placed today. The moler consists of a mixture of fine clay and incomprehensible amounts of microscopic diatomite, which lived, died, and sank to the bottom of the moler ocean.
The museum shows an impressive collection of fossils and tells the story about the moler’s formation and its utilization in modern days. There is also an area with microscopes where you can examine the moler yourself.
In the beautiful surroundings you will find a nature trail, which leads through one of the moler graves and past excavated houses from the Viking Ages and the Middle Ages.
You are welcome to search for fossils at the bottom of the grave. However, it is not allowed to search for fossils in the steep walls due to landslide danger. You can have your findings assessed in the museum. Suitable for handicapped.
The Fossil- and Molermuseum is a part of Museum Mors.
