worth a visit!
Jul 2019
MUJA is a small but well-designed museum. My husband and I, and our 9 year old daughter, enjoyed it very much. There are replicas of dinosaurs outside, as well as life-size dino footprints. There's also a small playground for kids.
The exhibits inside are interesting and well-laid out. We found some of the lighting to be too dim, and would have appreciated more information in English, but it was worth visiting nonetheless.

Extremely well done museum
Jul 2019
This museum is wonderful. One of our group was friends with a senior scientist there, so we did get a tour of the bowels, but the regular museum was very good, great explanations, great displays, good dinosaur models. The outdoors part is a park full of dinosaur models. and playgrounds, and flowers. And, as long as you are in Colunga, there are dinosaur tracks at the beach up in the rocks!

We came here on a rainy day maybe we did not do it justice as the weather was torrential, But the museum was small had seen everthing in an hour but was was there was very good and modern, I think on a good day the views would be amazing and the outdoor space to.

Interesting but could be better
Aug 2019 • Friends
Outside is great with the models of the dinosaurs. Inside had lots of information but very little was translated into English for foreign visitors (luckily I speak Spanish) displays well laid out with interesting details. Very disappointed in this era of celebrating women in science that the great Mary Anning was completely overlooked in the display of important paleontologists. Has a good play area for children and a cafe and restaurant - though pricey. Takes 90 mins at the most to go round.

Thank you very much for your opinion. We offer audioguides and a hand brouchure in English, French and German in case our visitor need them. The Museum collects information from the main dinosauriologists and it was not Mary Anning specialty. We have show her work in a temporary exhibition in February about the Day of Women and Girls in Science celebration.

Beautiful spot, limited English signs
Sep 2018 • Family
In a lovely spot with beautiful views down the coast. The building is impressive, the displays could be more authentic and Spanish is almost exclusively used.

Free on Wednesdays
May 2018 • Couples
We coincidentally arrived on a Wednesday and entrance was free. Usually 7 euros. It was pretty interesting and worth a visit. If you are pressed for time though you wouldn't regret skipping it.
We never expect English to be available as I always get frustrated when people write that they were disappointed that English wasn't available. In saying that the English has been scratched off on many of the displays so you will need to practice your Spanish (or use google translate) to really understand what you're looking at.

Great place for kids
Jun 2017
With outdoor exhibits of the dinosaurs where you can get real close and the large playground for the kids this place was definitely worth the visit.

Rainy day
Aug 2017 • Family
It was a perfect day to visit this place...rainy. We had to make a long line to get in as it was summer vacation season. But it was worth to do so. In addition to their real contents, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery after the museum tour, also.
