  • Seemingly Jampacked museum with disorganized and confusing English guides. Interesting but sure needs modernization like audio  more »
  • A Museum in the historical continuity of the visit of the megaliths! Good explanations to understand the history of these standing stones!

  • We went yesterday at 12 only to discover it was to close between 12:30 and 2pm. We decided half an hour an hour would be inadequate so said we would return today. We returned today to find it was closed all day. The website is incorrect as it opens on different days in different months and is actually closed almost every day in January. I suggest you call to confirm the opening time before taking the trip to get there.
  • Very interesting and informative. Beautiful photos and beautiful specimens... A visit for the whole family

  • The Museum is small and rich. Exciting tour made by passionate professionals. Light on everything that can be found in the region. Sometimes indelicate people mistake Museum and amusement park for children, which does not lend itself to the place.

  • How not to go see Carnac in Brittany? Even if we can see the sights without guided tour, it would be shame to miss more explanation of these enthusiasts. Attention, we are not in Asterix, so certain are up to about 4 meters, the majority are about 1 meter. It's much less imposing than the imagination that Goscinny and Uderzo have inculcated.
