Esperaza, which is 5 minutes from Couiza in Aude, boasts a Dinosaur Museum and Hat Museum that stand side-by-side, with one ticket allowing entry to both.
As might be expected, the Dinosaur Museum is the larger, with 3000 m2 of expositions. Signs are written in English and French, which is a big help and their are numerous skeletal reconstructions, models of dinosaurs, collections of fossils and the like. It is breathtaking to see life-size reconstructions of dinosaurs and features in the museum are regularly added to, with a recent addition of a drawing section where children can shade their pictures with different 'dinosaur skin', which adds an interactive element.
