    The reconstructed village of prehistory, the animators are fine, good narrators. The Museum has a small film that talks about life in an era that is often forgotten.

    We stumbled by chance one day of rain in this museum. It is very informative, we understand how things were going at the time. The 10-minute film is very well done. I highly recommend it.

    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

    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

    I was quite disappointed by this museum. not very big, there are more cards and docs to read parts has admire. not really interesting for children. There are a few windows with scenes of life in prehistoric times but we quickly made the turn. What a pity, especially as this museum is presented in the Guide as a reference.

    Nice little return on our most distant past! Reminder of the moment one leaves the animal Kingdom. Many small objects. Nice temporary exhibition. We have done the climb and visit of the cave good balm. Place modest but trampled by men from 400 000 thousand years ago it's still something!

    A mixed... so much impression the temporary exhibition was beautiful, as the rest found us it cold, objects are not highlighted and explanations are lacking, much of Facsimiles, but is it needless to say that the objects are in plaster or plastic? :-( It's killing the charm. Few interactive elements, which greatly limits the fun aspect with respect to youth.
