  • 3rd visit in 4 years. Great informative site for children of all ages and even for adults. History of the evolution of man. Huge dinosaurs in realistic scenes. 2 Super films interesting. Hearing aids in french. One word: awesome and besides when the visit is over, a game park awaits the children. You can eat on the spot. Price: 58 euro for 2 adults and 3 children but ca family ticket worth it. Kids love.

  • Not to be missed if you are passing in the area. Quite suitable for a family visit, there is something for everyone. It is very informative for anyone who wants to learn more about the appearance of life on Earth and dinosaurs. In addition, the course is staked small puzzles and recreations that maintain the attention of children. Small thrills in some passages! For non German-speaking, audio guide indispensable. Only caveats: the price of admission, a cheap and insulation: hard to hear its audio guide when there are a lot of people where very noisy kids.

  • We have been here today with our children. The entrance with the huge skeleton is impressive. The exhibition is absolutely class, very loving and full of detail shown. Several cinemas and screenings are also very interesting. The children were impressed with the realistic Dinos. To make a journey through time to the Dinos, but also in other eras of the Earth. All explained very well and signposted. The staff was very friendly. After approximately 2.5 hours we were through and all excited. Was rounded off our trip by visiting the Dino world what is an Indoorspielplatz. The prices in the bistro are very family friendly. Can only recommend the Prähistorium.

  • 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
