Dinosauria Park (Greek: Ο Κόσμος των Δεινοσαύρων, O Kosmos ton Dinosauron) is a dinosaur park located near the town of Gournes in Crete, Greece, 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) east of the city of Heraklion. The park features some fossil replicas and several animatronic dinosaur models. Dinosaur models are displayed along an approximately 500 metres (1,600 ft) long walk, each accompanied by an information board.Add Dinosauria Park and other attractions to your Gournes trip itinerary using our Gournes trip app.
The Dinosauria Park started as an idea in 2013 and was first housed in Gournes Δekk, located in the former American base. It displayed 30 different dinosaur species from all periods of the Mesozoic era and other prehistoric animals.
In 2014 the exhibits were transferred to their own space, in which they were displayed in what would have been their natural environment. New species of dinosaurs were added, along with new sections, such as a "dinosaur hospital", depicting the hatching of a dinosaur egg. A "5D" cinema screen shows films to visitors.
Dinosauria Park reviews
This place is a complete ripoff. A few plastic dinos, signs in English is clearly a Google translate from 10years ago. Still waiting for the cinema which supposedly runs every 30 min, but have waited.... more »
It is too expensive for what you can get... My 3years old child pay ticket as well while in aquarium did not. Children up to 8-9years old may find interesting... However it is not so much interesting.... more »
An interesting place to visit with your kids and spend a couple of hours easily. You can purchase tickets for the planetarium with a discount if interested. The park is very nice but did not notice many changes since last visited 4 years ago. 5D cinema was a disappointment and the 3D glasses could barely fit over spectacles.
Great family experience. Highly recommended. The cinema is amazing and worth the extra fee. Me and my boy had a great time.
