The staff were great. Polite and very helpful. Entrance was free when I went so I have scored accordingly, although I believe that entrance to the gardens around the modern building is always free. It is well laid out and although not huge, has plenty to offer the young and anybody with an interest in dinosaurs. My only complaint would be that I arrived on foot in the mid day heat. It is up a steep hill and there is absolutely no signage to tell you how to get there. It was a long, frustrating and hot journey to find our way in. More signs please,!

Museo de Paleontologia de Castilla la Mancha is the paleontology muse and it is located in the surroundings of Cuenca, far from the old town. Here you can see some models of dinosaurs and other animals, which lived some time ago. Really, this part is very nice, especially for children. Also, in the museum you can learn about the history of the region and see some skeletons and fossils. Also, from here you can see very nice views of the city. Very interesting for adults and children.

We visited as a family group: 2 kids and 5 adults, walking from Plaza Mayor.

The walk is quite long with a steep downhill section from plaza mayor and then a steep uphill section going up to the museum (and very little shade). Unfortunately we followed google maps which led us to what was a locked gate a way off from the actual entrance of the museum. If you are walking there head for the intersection of Calle de Rio Gritos and Camino Deposito (there is also a bus stop on Calle de Las Torcas, very close to corner).

Once inside we were very pleased to discover that entry was free for all as it was Sunday (they are only open until 2pm on Sundays)!

We were lucky to arrive when there was a lady working who spoke a good amount of English. She was happy to provide a summary of the museum in English for us as most of our group could speak no Spanish.

There were about 5 different exhibit spaces that covered topics such as: trilobites, findings from the Las Hoyas archaeological dig including the Concavenator corcovatus "the hunchback hunter from Cuenca" and exhibits explaining the main dinosaur periods.

There was a good amount of English labels on all but one of the exhibits. The exhibits are quite varied and (with 2 exceptions of plastic models), there is no photography allowed in the museum.

The cafe / restaurant is not yet open to the public. There was a food / drinks vending machine.

We thought it strange that the museum seemed to be refurbishing some exhibits as it is a fairly new museum.

There are toilets available inside.

The landscaping outside the museum is lovely with some life size dinosaur models which make for interesting photos in front of the great views of Cuenca's old town.

We spent about 1 hour at the museum and that was enough time to enjoy the main exhibits and take in the views.

The museum is very well decorated, you can see the inside for €5 and the outside is free. The rooms are arranged chronologically and you can see many real fossils found in Castilla la Mancha, especially in Cuenca and Albacete. They also have life-size replicas of different prehistoric animals. I highlight how well the videos sound and look on the screens, the latest technology. Just as I gave my opinion regarding the organization of the science museum, I have to rule out that there were staff controlling all the rooms, which is very appreciated in museums so suitable for children. I recommend it.

A highly recommended museum, it is not excessively large but it has things to see and it is not boring at all for children or adults. If you also arrive when one of the dinosaurs is walking around, you can take some photos and the children will be delighted. The park around it is very curious and the views of the city are spectacular

We loved the museum. The people are very correct to tell you everything and also, the museum itself is very interesting and very well organized. In addition, outside there is a recreation of dinosaurs that, combined with the spectacular views of the city of Cuenca, is super beautiful.
