  • Visit informative, detailed panels. The Museum is well separated from each period. Very interesting.

  • We were greeted with a smile. He has even offered to us to catch up with the tour we had just missed 10 minutes. It was very informative, detailed, varied... All interviewees are professional archaeologists.

  • A visit with a fascinating guide, a great discovery which you're enriched. Do before discovering the alignments and the tumulus of Saint Michel.

  • 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.
