Children did request themselves to visit this “Jurassic museum”. They were really excited about it and didn’t want to leave. They pay attention to each of the room. Expo about men évolution was what they liked the most.

Nice museum, not too expensive. We were there for a few hours. Nice cafe too. Excellent dinosaurs. Over a few floors with the top floor having a little cinema. Great displays about the human body and how it works. Worth a visit.

Bring your family/friends and enjoy a different museum that is worth the small fee. We need to consider how much it costs to collect and maintain the items. There are good guides, for kids to enjoy science you only need to have a good entry...More

Er is ook een Villo station vlak voor de deur, wat het museum nog veel gemakkelijker bereikbaar maakt.
