  • For me personally, Gondwanna is always worth a visit. If you take time and by not rushing you can experience a pleasant journey when you a can be on it. If now the smaller broken were fixed in some places there were full score.

  • Prehistoric Park that takes back us in evolution, the time of the dinosaurs, all in a highly interactive atmosphere with 3D projections. Very informative both for children and adults. It takes at least 2 hours to close the visit. There is a possibility to eat inside the facility and also an indoor play park that will make the happiness of the children.

  • We were even twice last year in the Gondwana and both times were very enthusiastic. Yes, admission is not cheap, but as really much is offered, that didn't bother us. Very friendly staff. The visit of the Gondwana is easy for wheelchair.

  • Wow! What an awesome experience! I didn't really expect anything so my expectations were rather low. As to be expected, I was surprised with a ton of extremely well made and mostly very immersive presentations. What I got to see ranged from 3d movies, huge images and some textual details to replicas, automatically moving creatures and even many completely recreated and very atmospheric sceneries, filling big rooms and halls. This is something much more enjoyable than dry museums and of course way more educational than amusement parks.
  • A lot of fun for young and old....just not too young. I think children 6 and up will like it and enjoy the sights.
  • Fun place for the kids. The museum part is a little confusing. Grab the map at the front desk. Kids love the play area after too.
  • We didn't really look at the homepage and just expected to see some dinosaurs skeletons, IT WAS WAY MORE THAN THAT! It was beautiful and a really fun date my boyfriend and I are 28 so... It's great for the kids but also for Adults. The atmosphere and the lighting everything and the staff was VERY friendly. Great Place! WE WILL BE BACK
  • Pretty cool place for adults and children. Educational, inexpensive and fun for the whole family. Loved it!
