  • We did the tour of the Museum (who lasted 2 hours) with a guide who was very nice and well explained. And then the afternoon the village including the activities of the days too well! 2 adults and a girl of 8 years captive

  • Notable architecture of Norman Foster. Interesting, explanatory panels complete and many movies and videos. Some paintings of the life of yesteryear at different times. A "herd" on foot - 5 prehistoric animals - to the entrance... but I expect to see more inside: well ben, no! If you're in the area or if you're really fans, go ahead.

  • 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
  • If the children are there, we have to motivate them. It is a bit too technical for them and not enough interactive (treasure hunt, Riddle would be welcome). We see large animals at the entrance and we say WOW! Nope, nothing more. However for a presentation on prehistory, at the top!

  • 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.
