  • Reflection and exposure, both within the Museum and the outdoor Esplanade, extinct Jurassic fauna. It is a very educational and highly interesting, both for adults and for children. You can supplement with a later visit some authentic traces of dinosaur, on the coast of the nearby beach of the Greek. Once there, econtrareis pointed out the path, walking about until a natural viewpoint, on a rocky area, where have left its signal these illustrious inhabitants Jurassic. Easy walk, even for children.

  • The place as you arrive already it surprises by its exterior and entrance to the Museum are invited. The guided tour of a lovely boy who interacted very well with children they learned much and loved them. We aim them at a workshop to finish and it was a great decision because they came out with his own delighted dinosaurs strike recommend it to everyone.
