Museo Piedras del Mundo is a museum of natural sciences that was established by brothers and geologists Gabriel and Osvaldo Merenda. The museum is divided into three exhibit sections focusing on the topics of mineralogy, malacology, archaeology, and entomology. Stones from around the world are showcased in the museum's mineralogy exhibit, with information on how each is found in nature and how the stones have been used by world societies. Fossils are also displayed, along with meteorites, volcanic material, and synthetically-created stones. Archaeological findings and fossils are displayed in the museum's archaeology exhibit, while flora and fauna from the Fertile Valley is showcased in the museum's malacology exhibit.
