    We have visited this Museum and we left happy. The Jurassic Museum contains pieces (replicas) dinosaurs as well as skeletons and other curious things of the 3 key stages in which they lived. In addition, also explain this with the findings made in Asturias, which helps to understand the processes of search. Explains all details and curiosities about all types of dinosaur, as well as having many replicas that make you a very clear idea about its size and the imposing what could be. As unique drawbacks: tail very long, its location, so far (recommended to go soon to park your car properly) and the only nearby restaurant quality (better go to Colunga or some nearby town). Finally, there are numerous discounts on the entry (already cheap of itself) as the young flesh, partner of Fnac, minor... And temporary exhibitions as well as workshops for children, turning it into a Museum without any age restriction.

    Good Wednesday is free and you have workshops for children very well organized, it is worth the visit. The place where it is located is very beautiful. The Museum staff is very friendly. It is a small museum but it is well to have a fun time.

    I went with two teenagers and impressed by the amount of parents with young children. The inner journey is possible in less than an hour. They do tours, but we arrived late. Reproductions of dinosaurs are very good and educational and also features, the Museum, with actual samples. On the outside of the Museum, there is complete (no bones) reproductions of all the animal. It's worth the time.

  • 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.
  • Brilliant exhibitions and would recommend anyone traveling around the Asturias region to visit the Museo del Jurasico.
  • perfectoo
  • A great Museum to go with children. Outside there is a garden, children games, figures of dinosaurs and great views. A day of the week the entrance to the Museum is free. Worth a go but not is to see the exhibition.
