Cave Art Museum
Lascaux II features replicas of the famed Lascaux Cave's 17,000-year-old Paleolithic paintings, which are only 200 m (650 ft) away. Discovered in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the original cave attracted 1,200 visitors a day. By 1955, carbon dioxide and light had begun to damage the paintings. In 1963, the cave was shut down to preserve the art. The museum opened in 1983. Look for a replica of the cave's Great Hall of Bulls and the Painted Gallery. A visit to Lascaux II represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Montignac itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • To begin with, it is difficult to book. If we're here that a week, impossible to book a slot. Or, there's the world. The visit proved to be less exceptional than thought. May be we very high expectations, but the visit proved to be short with comments very inaccessible for children. May be it was the wrong day.

  • I understand and agree that we cannot visit the historical site. The reconstruction work is admirable, but it's not everything. The entrance to the building gives the impression of being at Disney.

  • I put a misapprehension on the pre sales but not on the site which is a must and very well staged. But at what price! I'm short but we do 1 h 30 drive (after trying to call without success to not do this trip in vain) the pass family not being available online. Total: arrival at 14.00, possible visit at 17:18. price full price € 58,60 because 1 child a year too old (instead of €44.90) but no control of identification to verify age... The site is not clear at all on the subject and in the month of July there is only one person at the standard to meet all calls... The cashier agreed with me that the Organization for a site of this fame is more than light... Only non connected take care not to make the trip for nothing... If I had known I would have lied to the cashier on the age of my oldest to save € 14 and have the family pass saw that nobody controlled the age of my children. I was furious about the lack of clear information on the web, but also on the flyers distributed on site!
