  • Recommended visit. Although somewhat expensive the price of admission. Models of dinosaur to actual size on the outside of the enclosure

  • We were a Saturday afternoon, the first we saw all reproductions from the outside, and when I started at sundown we entered, they have an audio guide and workshops for children. We liked very much the three!

  • Perhaps if you go with children is more entertaining for us was very normalito. For the € 7.20 costs, all are replicas and models, and some of them regular. Not it would recommend unless you go with children because for them perhaps is more entertaining and make some workshop or has tale.

  • 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.
