  • Recommended. The kids were in the workshop while adults were listening to the explanations of the guides. A very educational hour and learning new things. If the world of the fossils do not miss it.

  • They sold it to me as something special and unique, but don't expect much. To those children them going to enchant safe but already is. If you are a fan of dinosaurs or expert not to go. I just recommend it to families with children.

  • It is located near Colunga and Lastres, with easy car access, indicated by posters, and free parking. On the outside there are around ten reproductions of life-size dinosaurs that are a very attractive sight and like much about children. There is also a children's playground and cafeteria. Inside the Museum is very didactic and explains many things about palaeontology and the evolution of species, focusing on dinosaurs. Not count with many parts original, but yes with screens interactive and spectacular reproductions of skeletons of dinosaurs. It offers guided tours and workshops for children (in summer and weekends the rest of the year), both last about an hour. Wednesday admission to the Museum is free. It is a recommended activity for a couple of hours to do with children.

  • Good place for kids, some dinosaurs outside then several exhibits inside. Cafe for food and a good playground for the kids. It's also near a dinosaur beach.
  • Comprehensive and educative Jurasic museum. Good layout Great for both kids and adults. Nice activity for a rainy day.
  • Poco aparcamiento y prácticamente todo son replicas.
  • This well to go with the children. The cafeteria super face and has a park perfect for the Nano. You can then download the Greek Beach to eat. The Museum a little expensive but fun.

  • Very interesting. Also on the outside has a lot of replicas of dinosaurs ideal that children play and take some pictures. La Griega Beach and the village of Lastres close this.
