  • Beautiful exhibition with many beautiful visualizations of the past. In addition, of course, the t. Rex. Also many fun activities and explanations for children of all ages.

  • Wonderful that we in Netherlands some millions of years old skeleton of Rex. Especially for children fun stories, movies and game features. Rather pricey thing to visit with your family.

  • A fun filling in for big and small. Also interactive for small children. In the future on a larger location. With Museum card holders free, otherwise 27.50 euros for adults.
