  • Very didactic, fun to visit, without large crowd and rush. Tutorials on archaeology are very well-made, scholarly without being pedantic, accessible not do Walt Disney!

  • A small Museum of prehistory, in the middle of nowhere... A priori... BOF. Hebien Hunt the assumption. Run visit this Museum and Park. The site is beautiful. The guide of the day (Stéphane?) is a well of knowledge. Exciting, passionate... equally at home with children who discover that with enlightened amateurs. The "theme park" is interactive and educational without being boring. Wonder... Go ahead!

  • Places are excellent, stunning scenery and the small tour by train liked children. the idea of walking through a former village reconstructed, to enter the houses of the time, and to see even the animals is super nice. (the kids loved the lack of cuddling sheep!) Two caveats: the places really miss explanations. one often finds in front of something by searching for the Panel (sometimes located 100 meters back, turned the other way (as the musical tree!), and there are often three sentences quickly shipped to talk about what we have in front of itself. the purpose of such a place are) t to transmit knowledge of heritage. the visit is one thing. Explain it would have been more complete. Then food prices particularly exorbitant, especially given the benefits... It is customary in this kind of places, to take hostage customers who want to eat without leaving the premises, but we must respect a minimum external tariffs. Many shops have already demonstrated that sell more cheaper can often earn more that sell less to more expensive. The evidence is empty terraces, while the visitors were many. A must-see if you are in the area. Allow a few hours on-site and good shoes for kids!

  • Friendly visit, workshops (painting and especially sculpture) which were well pleased to children (5-9 years). The personal and mediators are nice and eager to share their knowledge. To advise.
