We went in the low season and were the only people there, and I loved it. Yes the collection across the three museums is random, yes the roof leaks when it rains. If you are the kind of person who can make their own fun...More

....but by itself it could do with an update. It will appeal to younger dinosaur loving kids but my son wasn't that impressed. Do visit though as it's part of a bigger composition of museums and shouldn't really be reviewed by itself.

This is a FREE attraction right in the bull ring in Estepona. It's fairly small and doesn't take very long to get round but the kids enjoyed it, although slightly confused over the names of the species of Dino's that were there! Best of all...More

Stop off for an hour and it's quite interesting. It's in the bull ring so you can also take in the bull fighting museum and marvel at how small some of the old fighters were by the size of their costumes
