Thinking of taking my kid on to look at some fossils. I am definitely planning a visit to the Badlands to go dinosaur bone hunting but are there other parks or places similar to this?
Not the scale of the Badlands, only a small museum, there is Dinosauria Museum in the South-West of France, somewhere between Carcassonne and Perpignan in a small village named Espéraza.
Near that place there is another museum dedicated to the Tautavel Man.
This region on the foothills of the Pyrénées mountains is also full of medieval Cathar castles.
