“Poor value for money”
Review of Paleospace

Reviewed October 20, 2013

A previous reviewer rated this museum as terrible. I would not be quite so unkind but do share his thoughts. In short there is not much to see, the exhibits - all on one level - are mainly reproductions and the staff distinctly unenthusiastic. Maybe OK for a school outing but not for visiting tourists. Suggest you keep your money in your pocket.

This is a modern and interactive museum next to the marais in Villers. The highlights are the fossils from the nearby cliffs, but there's much else about the marais environment and (though a bit out of keeping) global positioning - they even give due reference to the brilliant John Harrison, through perhaps a bit begrudgingly. The Greenwich Meridian enters France and Villers in case you were wondering. But this is a fine museum, particularly if you have kids who love dinosaurs and want to combine it with a walk around the marais on the trails nearby - a very good use of a couple of hours.

This is not a good museum. They have barely any exhibits, and most of what they have is simply plaster casts. It is small and very inadequate with staff who are clearly unhappy because they have to deal with the disappointment of the public. It's not a place to be proud to work in. If you imagine the first room of your local museum - with its handful of flint arrowheads, and lots of drawings and models, and the little corner where the kids can do some interactive work, like feel the pebbles in the box, and then spread that out over the whole of the museum, and that's what you have here. It's what you expect for free in one room of an average local museum. If it was free, you could give credit for the educational approach, and that it will entertain the kids (with your support) for a little while; but it's not worth paying for.

We had planned this as a wet weather activity, but arrival, could see by the size of the building that there couldn't possibly be too much inside at all .so after a sneak preview from the reception desk, decided not to go in after all ! It would, however probably suit younger families where a large venue would be too much all in one go.
