  • Pleasant surprise. While it had long been wanting to visit this Museum, I finally decided. The visit has been great. In Asturias, we can count with one of the best museums in the world dinosaurs. A real luxury. Thanks Chus, the Guide, we have learned a lot of dinosaurs and those who are not. Certainly not Asturias and Asturian, you should visit this Museum, must see!

  • No I found it especially interesting for professionals or amateurs with the subject matter. Almost all of the above are replicas. In other non-specialised museums I have seen many more fossils of truth. I think you could improve this aspect without too much investment. I see it rather aimed at a child audience, but it is not my case.

  • Interesting and educational Museum. In addition you can spend it big taking you pictures with the dinosaurs to the actual size of the garden. The day of the visit there was fog so the atmosphere was unbeatable. They have a large sample of ichnites (dinosaur footprints) of the area. The staff is attentive. The only thing bad baths... had started latch, I didn't have much privacy.

  • Brilliant exhibitions and would recommend anyone traveling around the Asturias region to visit the Museo del Jurasico.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting. The building is spectacular. It is highly recommended to see it if you are interested in these issues.
