  • 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.

  • Great experience for the whole family. Lot of detail on the different environments. The movies and shows are very good. The price was great. We received a discount. Even without it, I believe the price is fair. Only down side was the lack of English placards. Overall was a great experience that I will definitely recommend.
  • Wow ... Excellent. I will not ruin the suprise by telling you all the great things. Go, it is completely worth it. 3 adults, two kids (6 & 2) and a sleeping baby. Everyone enjoyed it.
  • Huge facility with amazing 3D & 4D theaters. The robotic dinosaurs and displays are very realistic. Well worth the visit!
  • 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.
  • Awesome museum. So real tho. Great place to visit with kids and there is an awesome playground for kids! Wünderbar!
