  • Entry a bit expensive but worth a visit. The route is well signposted in a pleasant wooded. We liked contemplate are animals of the age of dinosaurs life-sized, as well as reproductions of our ancestors in their everyday life scenes. Various objects in the windows in the room are to be seen.

  • Too much to see models of wax very poorly done, which have badly aged, which makes them laughable; so motionless cardboard dinosaurs that are also very antiquated. I had the opportunity to see at Thoiry zoo, a route discovery about dinosaurs; the animals were articulated and sound effects made the course interesting and well done. I believe that to a park dedicated to this theme, is in 2017, it is possible to make characters and animals much more realistic. Too bad because the Park is beautiful and great. There is therefore the potential to make a nice interesting tour.

  • Visit family with our children of 8 and 11 years (our grand is fan of this period of history). We really enjoyed, the paintings are beautiful. The Park is great. However, the duration is pretty fast and lasts an hour. Possibility to buy drinks and ice cream and eat inside or on the terrace. There is also a small friendly gift shop.

  • I was expecting this to be a little naff, given we live nearby to a large dinosaur animatronic exhibition - however we went because thought the kids needed to let off a bit of steam and have a run about. We were pleasantly surprised however - yes the models are static, but they are beautifully sculpted, and they appear very naturally set in ample woodland, which gives it a lot of authenticity - the kids got very excited spotting the dinosaurs. But I was actually most impressed with the prehistoric animals - animals which survived the dinosaur extinction but are now extinct. The information boards are written in several languages and contain plenty of interesting technical detail. The last section is on prehistoric man and is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty (looks like an old quarry). We saw a demonstration on fire, which the kids loved (and was presented in English), showing how early man created fire. Recommended!
  • At first not very interesting BUT it gets better as you go around. Worth a stop off with the kids in passing. The kids will love it though👍🏻
  • Fun
  • A top day out, very interesting & factorial. My 6 & 3 year old loved it.
  • Models looking a bit tired
