The permanent exhibition of the The Eco Museum – Visitor Centre/ Pyrenees Bird invites you to visit the impressive Pyrenean mountain range, where the forests and meadows, rivers and waterfalls, rocky outcrops and gorges, peaks and glaciers and their flora and fauna are the protagonists.

The exhibition starts by describing Aínsa, the Sobrarbe region and the Pyrenees mountain range.

Following this it shows us, in a very visual way, the natural and cultural wealth of the Pyrenees, its diverse ecosystems, its people and customs, and how to conserve them.

After this introduction, the exhibition will transport us to the mountain, invite us to enter the forests, rocky peaks and peaks of the Pyrenees and discover the multitude of life in each environment.

In addition, we will discover the secrets of the great, winged treasure of this mountain range, the Lammergeier.
