  • We are there with our family. Two adults and three children. For a family, we were €53-map. That was definitely worth it. It is educational and beautifully made all!! You wander through ancient times and en route including exhibitions, dinosaurs, Neanderthals, fossils and 3D movies. Ideal getaway on a day with less again. At the entrance is a food court and a play area for small children.

  • We visited with three families, kids between 3 and 11. The younger children, 3 and 6, found it sometimes scary. The older ones, 8+, had no such troubles. We all liked the first part of the exhibition ...  more »

  • A very interesting museum. We had so much fun as a family. The animated dinasours were very well done, and it was so much fun to look at them! I would go back again. The food is pretty good also!
  • Awesome museum, love that you can walk through the exhibit and see the dinosaurs in action. The show with the long necks was awesome. And if you have children dont forget to check out the PLAY AREA its awesome.
  • good place.. intersting for kids.. good playground... godd foe a stay for a few hours. good resraurant...
  • Amazing indoor Dinosaur museum! They have life sized, realistic looking robotic dino's that will certainly have you wondering if they found a way to rebirth dino's and horded them for human entertainment! There is an evolution tree throughout the museum that teaches you the history of Earth and mankind that is super awesome. They have a military discount, a bistro to eat and also an indoor playground for the kiddos! I highly recommend checking it out! It is also clean and friendly. :)
  • 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.
