The last time we have been that place was half the size. Now it is finally worth the money. It still is ki da pricy, especially if you are a bigger family. I just went with my son and it was already 30 Euro.

Doesn't look like much from the outside but this is a great indoor activity even if your German is limited. Handsets provide translation. Interesting for all ages, 3D movies, lifesize moving dioramas, and a few surprises along the way. We spent a couple of hours on a rainy day in the exhibit and then another couple of hours in the...

Was very skeptical based on the location and neighborhood but once inside I forgot where I was. The budget must have been incredible for these attractions. Multiple 3D movies and amazing animatronics. Went with our 9 and 13 year old and they both said it was the best museum ever. If your around Saarbrucken or Ramstein area, you need to... More

We were really surprised at how well done the GONDWANA - Das Praehistorium was. We were initially disappointed at the price (it is very expensive), but after you visit you will understand the cost, and it is worth it. From 3D movies to 4D Movies, rain forests, simulated dinosaur action, animatronics and a huge shark "Megalodon" that trys to break... More

Gondwana is a nice museum that has a little bit of everything for kids and adults. It's a decent sized attraction with dinosaur bones, fossils, and animitronix. There's also short films to watch about dinosaurs and one about the megaladon. There's a small gift shop and snack bar with decent prices. The only negative is we went the only time... More

Do your kids love dinosaurs? Mine do, in fact they were in Dino heaven at this place (so were the adults)! Gondwana is an interactive museum that takes you on a journey from the birth of the planet right up to the present day, it really brings history to life. My 9 year old said ‘its the sickest place he’s... More

It is a mix of a museum and Disneyland like attractions. Sometimes the emphasis is on information, sometimes it is rather only special effects. All in all not a bad combination and kids love it. Some long waiting though, and some attractions are getting a bit old. Free indoor playground as well. Quite expensive, entrance fee 17 euro for children,... More

I found a brochure about his place. My daughter (age 5) really likes dinosaurs. We spent about 3 hours here, but could have probably spent another 2-3 hours easily. It took us most of the time to get through the whole place, plus we spent about another 30-45 minutes in the indoor play area. There are 4 movies in the... More

We didn’t really have any expectations when we decided to take the 1.5h drive from Luxembourg to Saarland. Our two boys are mad about dinosaurs, so even if it would have been a scruffy old exhibition, we probably couldn’t go wrong. But did we get a surprise! This place is excellent. The exhibition was very informative and there was something... More
