  • Those who are interested in the life of our oldest ancestors, can dive here in her life. Whether child or adult, the visitor discovered a variety of interesting details here as was at that time lived. A modern Museum for the whole family!

  • The Museum is very interesting and the temporary exhibitions are to visit with a guide. The workshops are to be discovered. The August theater festival is worth.

  • come especially we were not disappointed: the Museum offers a complete overview of this period: reconstitution of camps, casts of didactic Panel found (and), objects, films showing the techniques of size, polishing.. etc the topic appeared to us Treaty quite extensively; I also enjoyed the exhibition on women in prehistory which puts into perspective the role of women in these primitive societies

  • Interesting collection in the museum - prehistoric era. Housed in historic chateau buildings spanning 1000 years of construction - the latest addition in 2009 provides light filled and relaxing place to see the collection and gorgeous views over the surrounding village and countryside. Kids activities/calendar of tours in English/audio guides available all the time.
  • Very interesting, if not a little on the expensive side..
  • This museum has the label tourism and handicap. 🚻♿HANDI-ACCESSIBLE, WC and including elevator. And now, also in LSF (French sign language)! It is in harmony with the monument. Nice integration with the medieval castle than this modern wing, which hosts the bulk of the collections. This museum is very pleasantly light, and there are very many openings on the campaign or on the heights of the village. Side rates, families can rest assured, because the "full price" is € 5.50. 😊 This museum is very affordable and in a pleasant setting. Why deprive yourself of such output? It is undeniably part of the detours that it is worth making in Touraine, and more exactly in southern Touraine, territory rich in history (s) and heritage built or natural, pictorial or scriptural. Montresor, 2nd "favorite of the French village" 2015, until Descartes and his famous philosopher, through Yzeure-on-Creuse and Mado Robin, the Citadel of Loches and its collections of the municipal of paintings, Louis Delaporte and his sketches of Angkor Wat, the poetry of Alfred de Vigny, etc... eventually one would almost do not know where to look.

  • The Museum of the prehistory of Grand Pressigny is installed in the castle in the commune of the same name, in Indre-et-Loire. A splendid place outside and inside large rooms very well lit by large bays giving on the outside. Teaching quality (special mention for the archaeology workshop) and very playful animations. Excellent output with students or in family. A place is available for a picnic. I recommend!

  • Very beautiful exhibition. My daughter loved the animation "the lighting of a fire".
