Stories of Miocene life written in the rocks of Papuk.
The tour of the House of the Pannonian Sea begins with an introductory presentation on the life on planet Earth and fossils – how they are preserved and what they tell us about the environment of the past, with emphasis on the flora and fauna of the Pannonian Sea
The presentation ends with a game played on the sandy shore of the Pannonian Sea, on the interactive floor of the room. After the visitors have been introduced to the main theme of the exhibition, the actual tour of different stories about the Pannonian Sea during the Miocene Epoch begins in the second hall.

The four walls of this hall feature a combination of interactive screens and real exhibits of fossils found on Papuk, which separately cover the sea floor, the coast and the land during the Miocene, as well as Papuk today. The first interactive screen emulates the position of Papuk, the transition of lakes and the sea and other events from 18 million years ago until today. In addition, by interacting with the visitor, the exhibition tells stories of things that used to swim in the Pannonian Sea, which is visible from the displayed fossils.
