  • Museum dated but indispensable when it comes to carnac. It's time to give a little bit of fees and improve the pedagogy of the panels. Uninteresting for young children.

  • visit this museum solo... It's very interesting if you take a guide, in my opinion it is a must if you go by Carnac (y)

  • The Museum much centered on the archaeologists who made the excavations and tooling manufactured in the Neolithic... Finally nothing intriguing about the life of 6000 years before our era. But congrats anyway to all these people that allow us to learn more.

  • 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.
  • Super boring and passieloos museum. Because people from all over the world come to Carnac, one can not complain about the number of visitors. Only suitable for French-speaking. The Dutch translation that is present, is so bad that my son of 6 that sees itself.

  • Nice little Museum, many of the explanations though were only in French. Nothing particular on the whole of the visit.

  • Very understanding and chart, it also shows the efforts of the archaeological research done by the researchers.
