  • The system should appeal to children who are excited about dinosaurs. The first part is to PostFinance - and image-heavy. The replicas are very nicely done, should scare but again and again (Ghost) by moving monsters. But why is everything in black? Then, too, there was light. The staff are dressed in black. The food chain is not shown, it always just a dinosaur eats another. Because families are addressed with children, whatever stroller and co are blocking everything. This is not your fault, this is a failure of planning. The time travel is totally unnecessary. Why must it be to the last moving representation so loud? Loud pseudo dramatic music and ROAR. Even the dinosaurs have not always yelled. Finally, descriptions missing. Why is a said, a representation of the last 8 minutes and then a waterfall swells during this time and. And a dinosaur sits on a rocky outcrop (how did he get there) and WAGs. What does one expect in 8 minutes? The ticket prices are not family-friendly. It is €100.

  • Was surprised. Very informative, scientifically researched, exciting! Great replicas. You can spend a whole day in Gondwana. First discourages the high entry price, but at the end of the visit, you know that he is justified.

  • Absolutely fantastic place to go with dinosaur loving children. Younger children might get scared. Very well designed mix of animation 3D/4D movies, and life like scenes. A little bit expensive but really worth it. Spent the day there with a dinosaur obsessed 4 year old and a 8 year old they both had great fun. Most of all we all really enjoyed the dinosaur show! The lady had reception was not very nice but the young mine inside was very helpful and nice. There are audio guides available in French and English for non German speakers.
  • I loved this place, on the outside it looks small but once you enter it you'll be blown away, loved their films and loved the way they used all of the space to exhibit the dinosaurs and their way of making you live the moment. I would give it 10/10 even their shop is awesome it has a lot of creative stuff like you can buy a game where you can search for fossils! and also they have delicious fries 😉I recommend this museum for anyone who's interested in dinosaurs or loves museums. You won't regret visiting it!
  • Awesome place went there with family and enjoyed it shows were great staff is friendly and the best part is there is an indoor playground right after you are done with the tour you can go there with the little kids and let them have it. Military ID card holders get 10% discount. Highly recommend!!!!
  • Great place the staff are great. My kids love this place
  • a great place to spend a day with the kids especially on cold rainy days , the Exhibitions are organised beautifully and the time travel and the adventures are fun although I would invest more on a better quality 3D glasses if I were them
