The walk recreates what cave and medieval occupation of the caves might have looked like, and is particularly helpful for kids to visualise - and is really quite sweet, with lots of interesting details and animals to spot. The caves themselves are magnificent, and the medieval tunnels a thrilling sight. I particularly loved seeing the small rooms, left apparently pretty... More

You follow a walkway around the caves and old dwellings. Starting off with neolithic man (who according to the mannequins were had no shortage of food for the ice age) you learn about how man lived. Yes it is a bit naff in places but actually it is really interesting with lots to look out for. You get to really... More

Sights and sounds and an education for young and old. This is an experience to consider if in the area. You can opt to take the long or short route, we chose the long route at a leisurely pace. There was always plenty of information about each exhibit and towards the end of the tour, it was interesting to see... More

Kids loved learning about the historic way of living. Yes the mannequins need a bit of updating but kids didn't seem bothered. Got a given a guide book in English which was great as all signs in French. Walking through the caves was the highlight. Worth it if your in the area but don't go out of your way to... More

Nothing like St Christophe but worth a stop if you have a time. Some of the extras are a bit naff. Good photos

Visited here in June 2015. For the money it cost to get in I was extremely disappointed by it. It says it takes an hour to an hour and a half to walk round. It took us 30 minutes, walking at a slow place. They need to update the plastic men and women who are trying to show us what... More

At first I thought this kind of cheesy, and it really is, but if it is your first time in the area and you are new to the history of your surroundings it is worth the visit. Just enjoy yourself and you will learn a lot.

We had to go and even though I was a little reluctant I was pleasantly surprised. It really is remarkably well presented and entertaining and a good way of engaging with prehisto man and his development through time. Both humans and animals engage and educate and you can even enjoy sound effects. Great in January as no people and no... More

Having read the Clan of the Cave Bear series, this brought it all to life - a commanding position above a fertile valley

We had parked in the carpark earlier in the trip for a coffee break and thought it didn't look like much. However, we later picked up a leaflet and chose this over the St Christophe equivalent We really enjoyed the trip. Yes, there are human mannequins, but ythey demonstrate clearly what life may have ben like. They also have animals... More
