Naturalis has been closed for a while now - it is in the middle of a big refurbishment and expansion. The T-Rex exhibition however is in a building next to it and it is definitely open to the public. The exhibition is outstanding - it...More

This is a very beautifully designed museum with a lot of things to do; we went with a friend of ours who is a biologist, and she loved it too. There is also lots of things to do for children, and the T-Rex is awesome.

It's a nice museum but it's getting renovated at the moment so half of it's closed at the moment. The dinosaur exhibition is great fun for the kids but it's only about an hour or so. Maybe best wait till it's renovated.

A very well organised and structured display with "Trix" the T-Rex skeleton being the obvious highlight. Plenty of interactive areas to keep younger ones interested, and overall a fine exhibit. Entry fee is moderate, but you can certainly appreciate that this is not a cheap...More

Went to Naturalis on Saturday, due to extensive renovations only the T-rex exhibition was open for public. The price was however not changed at approximately 15 euro per person, for only one real skeleton. Does offer some nice quests for children. Wouldn't recommend without children

The T-rex skeleton and the fossils are pretty impressive. Glad to see something like this. But for us, a party of two adults, the visit kept 30 minutes... there could be more things to see with a ticket of 13.5 €...

The exhibition is very interactive and made mainly for children. But also for a adult the tour is very i informative and funny.
