  • I've been with my partner, and being Wednesday was free (we did not know it), but they are about € 7, visit guided had a cost of 1.70 approx per person and it lasted an hour, we got it and he liked us, have learned things that we didn't know and seen fossils of dinosaurs that impressed. When the guide is finished the visit us has that it was his first visit, the truth is that praise him because he has done great! We have been delighted!

  • Definitely worth visiting the MUJA family, above all if some small is no fan of these bugs. Impress the Museum, is a building which is also interesting and gardens complete the visit. I recommend it if you are in the area. Closed in January!

  • We spent one morning very entertaining in this museum are replicas of dinosaurs on the outside which leaves us to imagine the scale they had. He is found within all stages of the planet from the separation of the continents, there are reconstructions of whole skeletons and footprints were found on the Asturian Coast, from different periods. There are workshops for children, café, shop etc.

  • 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.
