The study is focused in the analysis of the interpretation and educational resources that are used in these two centers, therefore, the performance of a correct educational transposition of geology and geodiversity. Results concluded in both cases a necessity of making the exposition more interactive with visitors, as well as the contents to be best suited for general and school groups.
