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.

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.

The dinosaurs are outside in a field lending a realistic feel to this age of dinosaurs. The museum is very clever in its set up- a one way Path through the ages... with good explanations about details in history and biology. Very visual and i...More

Thanks for your opinion, approximately 80% of the pieces exposed are original, although it is true that the big skeletons are replicas. The museum has hand guides and audioguide in English to make the tour to the exhibition. Regards,

Who knew Spain had a Jurassic Coast? I do now, and this museum is the key reason. Excellent displays explaining the evolution of life...albeit in Spanish...plenty of large skeletons including a pair of T-Rex. Didn't really matter that they were replicas as they were up...More
