The park is very small, the museum inside is not big, a few exhibits tell the history of Lucerne from the Ice Age to the present
About 20 million years ago, when the Alpine orogeny did not begin, the Lucerne region was a subtropical coast, with fossils of coconut trees, shells, tropical fish, etc. at that time. Seeing the fossils really feels the vicissitudes of life.
Next to the dying lion's carving is the glacier park, which retains the trails of glacier movement, and in addition to some glacier remains, an indoor exhibition presents the geographic changes of lucerne and the surrounding mountains. There is also a tower inside the park that goes up to overlook the city of Lucerne
