Paléospace l'Odyssée


Imagine what the world was like 160 million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth... A museum waiting to be discovered!

During the Jurassic Period, the sea covered Normandy, later to form the Falaises des Vaches Noires (Black Cow Cliffs) that stretch from Villers-sur-Mer to Houlgate. Many fossils have been discovered on the site: 30 feet-long pliosaurs, sea urchins, saltwater crocodiles, ammonites and even the remains of dinosaurs... Come and discover and even touch some of them at the Paléospace visitor centre.

One of the exhibition rooms focuses on the Greenwich Meridian for Villers-sur-Mer marks the first spot where it hits the Continent.

Also worth a detour: the coastal marshes.

With the family

A museum for the whole family to discover palaeontology. Evolution, fossils, dinosaurs... Your children are sure to be fascinated by "Anna", a life-size ichthyosaurus.
