  • We went this December as a couple. The Park is dedicated to the recovery of different species but the visuta focuses on the dissemination of science. It is a diverse place. You can find some small free animals, show you any snake, you can see some fossil remains, they have various parts of real spaceships, giant squid... There is a guided tour at 16.30 - 17.00 h drive and if there are more than 10 people made a visit to the Planetarium. The entrance is worth $ 8 and the Park does not receive any subsidies (something that I don't understand, I think they do a great job). It was certainly a good discovery

  • Actually visit the Park of life and spend an entertaining evening learning worthwhile. It is a place created with lot of care in which you can see from parts of satellites and real rockets to a collection of fossils, to animals in recovery and a small sample of what was the Museum of the giant squid. In addition, there is a planetarium and organize some activities of observation of the night sky on certain dates. Most remarkable of all is the great work Luis Laria ago along with other persons who collaborate with it to preserve and restore the wildlife in the area. It is a site raised thanks to the self-help without the support that it deserves from different institutions with justifying the price of admission.

  • Park of life is called and in principle is a Center for the dissemination of science. €9 the ticket for adults and € 6 for children. While we waited for the guided tour we take a small turn to der. Expected me more than the non guided tour, the truth, especially in relation to the price of the ticket. Then comes the guided tour. The girls put effort and tell you details todolujo. Like the rest of opinions we enjoyed the experience with snakes and other animals. Then is an interesting tour through the history of the Solar system and of the human being. They explain that they are also a centre of collection, treatment and recovery of animals. I miss less more information panels and more chances to make the visit at your own pace. The truly soporific was the Planetarium. The Lord who teaches master class seemed more a frustrated astronomer as a monitor of a museum. I understand that you want to make all his wisdom gala, but you have to know what audience you are managing and the majority are public child, you can't have them one hour sitting without any interaction. We went in the middle of the explanation and see that I love and I know things about astronomy. Many details about the formation of planets, satellites, sunspots. I understand that it is very difficult to hold with private funds and that reinventir in a Science Museum-Park costs much effort and money. Sorry to be so hard, but my recommendation is the reduce the planetary time and invest more in audiovisual or even workshops for children.

  • Very interesting visit. Many scientific information explained in a clear, concise and informative. Also lots of curiosity about science. During the day you can take part in guided activities suitable for children where you can learn interesting facts about the animal world. You can also take off and salamanders alive!! Finally, there are numerous examples in formaldehyde by giant squid! Some areas still under construction! Guides friendly and funny. Only drawback: the visits, the plaques and brochures are only available in Spanish. A must see!!!

  • Impossible to have it better prepared. One of the most beautiful to visit with children. It is regrettable that don't have any kind of support by the administration of the Principality with the work of environmental awareness that perform. Above you can see and even touch snakes and salamanders. We loved it. We will come back more often.

  • A surprising place. Here you will find the giant squid that were in the Museum of ballasts. The outdoor spaces are fantastic to make them with children. The exhibition halls are small are made quickly but very well done. The exciting Planetarium! It has parking, toilet and you can take something at reception

  • I don't understand the positive reviews. I don't think that they are impartial or free. The price is a real theft, and "attractions" a scam. Shameful. They should close it.
