Review of Paleospace

We went here as one of our children is Dinosaur mad and wanted to go after picking up a leaflet. As many have said, this is fairly small and I think the entry price is too much. Personally I found it a little boring but then we went for the kids. If your kids love dinosaurs then they will probably enjoy as one of ours did.

We did not know this place existed, and were delighted to stumble across it. Not only does it have a very good permanent exhibition relating to local finds, but it had an excellent touring exhibition on carnivores too. What's more, it has an aire du camping car alongside, and a lovely stretch of wetland.

We visited within a school trip. A guide took us to the beach and explained about fossils and we looked for fossils ourselves on the beach. In the afternoon, we met at the museum where the guide explained about the animals we could find fossilised.
The guide was interesting, and managed to keep the children captivated. He was very knowledgeable and could answer all of the children's questions!

While it's great to know about the paleontological past of the Normandy coast, this is a very small enterprise and costs (in 2016) 7 euros to get in. It only takes about ten minutes to go around. It's in a nice area, but if you come in summer, it is far more fun to see the topiary dinos in the center of the adjoining town, Villers-sur-Mer.

We had just arrived in Caen and the heavens decided to open.
We dived into a Macs for a hot drink and saw a leaflet advertising Paleospace.
Both my boys were very keen to go and explore.
It's not a massive place to visit so really only a few hours if you look at everything. But as it was dinosaurs and space my boys had a wonderful time.
Lots of pictures taken.
Souvenir shop was very expensive tho.
If the weather is nice when u go there is a cafe/coffee shop across the park from Paleospace. You can also hire bikes etc. something we would have done but didn't have the weather for it.
All in all a nice place to visit but doesn't take long to look around.
