  • Home perfect, guide who knows his Museum by heart, that we have learned many things, a woman with humor we love listening. Christophe archaeologist at the top which showed us how do fire, the size of flint and hunting techniques to the propeller, which can be initiated. Huge bones we had ever seen. I recommend to lovers of history.

  • Visit improvised with my two daughters. We arrived on site at 13:45. At 14:00 a guided tour is available and is suitable for young children. They were quickly absorbed by the atmosphere of the site and the spokeswoman of the guides quality on-site! Wink to 'David' the sculptor of the site. He was able to Captivate children with his art that master's degree with a master's touch! It will cost you only € 3 extra home for this discovery of the sculpture. My advice: a must! You will not regret it! PS: I still hurt to my hands as I write this message! But what a pleasure! Florent

  • It's far from everything and not very interesting. Especially for schools. The finest pieces found at the site are at the Museum of the prehistory in St. Germain. So presentation of couples or re-enactments. The archaeological site is not open to the public. Nevertheless friendly and very competent guides. We can profitably visit the Romanesque church very well restored thanks to the inhabitants and the municipality. Audio commentary and light free and very well made.

  • 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!
