My sister visited me with her husband and grandson and I decided to take them to see the dinosaur site, we had the best time ever! We even got to touch real fossilized dinosaur eggs! It is well worth the visit (even though the site is small) the staff were professional and explained everything very well. The best part was my great nephew got the chance to hunt for fossils like a real paleontologist. I definitely recommend it!

It's a nice small place where one can jump into the world of dinosaurs. The dino Antonio has been found there and one can also hear a very interesting story about it. One can also see real fossils as part of a rock of other dinos.

I took a class of second graders to visit the Dino park. The instuctors ( Giulia and Paolo) were really paleotologists and they were great with the kids. We learned how to dig for fossils and got to take home the ones we found. The kids had a blast!

Not far from the border between Slovenia and Italy I discoverd this paleontogical site just occasiunally. I made appointment for visit with Miss Giulia and I came this Monday morning with my students of the University for the third age from Izola, Slovenia. It was incredible how Giulia caught our attention and how interesting she explained about dinosaurus in the area, showed and explained us movie about the site, shoed us remains "in situ" and she added aloso the theme about carbonisation. For the end we tried to eat black coal - sueprise: delisious sweet!
If you are not too far you absolutely must visit the site! Ljuba Medak, prof. geo.
