  • Our kids were excited to see the Museum about the prehistory, subject of history they studied... we were quickly disappointed by this vast Museum but empty of content and not enough fun for young children. Only a few videos and scenes of life have attracted our attention. In short to avoid...

  • Beautiful setting for this Museum in the Verdon. Beautiful exposed collections of didactic and fun.

  • Great Museum with video and live scenes from prehistory which are very realistic and can give real images to children and adults on the life of prehistoric man

  • The museum does not really cater to elementary school children who usually study prehistory. Except one or two exhibits the glass cases are to high for children, the language is not understandable by children under the age of 12 or older. A great disappointment
  • A small but well stocked museum and one that does not talk down to its visitors. Well recommended.
  • As a visitor motivated to get the most out of his visit (building and content), I can confirm the other reviewer's note that, this museum would be of marginal of interest for the very young. While there are interesting recreations of a wooly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and wooly rhinocerous (among others) and numerous audio-visual exhibits to distract, the exhibits are informative but require reading skills and patience. For adults it is an excellent introduction to the geology and the geography of human habitation from the mid-Acheulian (from about 700,000 BC). I left the museum wishing I had another hour to continue my exploration. The area is a pleasant stop for lunch on the way from the Gorges du Verdon (Moustiers Sainte-Marie) and Saint-Maximin (access to the A8 motorway). Comment left 11 May 2013
  • Historical reconstructions of scenes pre life-size for children, many small objects under windows, videos... the summer visit guided accompanied up to the cave of the right balm (attention works need to be in good physical condition). I went there several times without regret it.
