Very didactic and pleasant walk through its different rooms. Recommended to go with children who also have a playground. It features a café and a souvenir shop.

It also has, also outside, a park where you can relax for a while and the cafeteria. The interior is composed of three areas of different periods. This part is already for slightly older children who have greater attention span or are quite interested in the subject. They have audio guides with information adapted to children. For parents, we found it interesting and with fossil bastents and striking reproductions. As a negative note say that the bathroom is out of the exposure and if you have to go you will have to hold on or walk the route to go t return to the point where you had stayed.
Brilliant, my dinosaur mad son had a great time. Nice park for kids to play also. 👍
Great museum! Lots of outdoor space sprinkled with dinosaurs, a couple of big playgrounds for kids and a restaurant with really nice views.
