  • Fun thing to do with children. They need to learn about schedules of the animations, which are largely the interest of the Park. The moderator knows interest his audience and knows his subject very well. The kids loved the workshop on fire and shooting of assegai in the propeller. On-site food good value for money. Attention excluding activities, outdoor designs are well done, but the tour is quickly made.

  • Nice site where did learn a lot about our ancestors. Friendly staff. Only downside: morfo is in poor condition, a pity because it must be very interesting.

  • How to learn - or revise - prehistory with very varied and fun activities for all ages. We are still there on a site inhabited by neanderthals. As soon as you are in the mood, you'll live out of time for a few hours (allow at least half a great day. If needed restaurants on site for a very reasonable price). Inside: superb exhibitions, exciting movies with a beautiful staging of the rooms, an interactive room for compare to Neanderthal man in strength, physical appearance... Outside: reproductions of villages and scenes of life and tour of the place where the skeleton of this Center was discovered. As for children and teenagers: workshops and demonstrations by passionate and exciting entertainers (shooting at the propeller, making fire, the ochre, Flint size paint, kitchen...). Learn about current activities according to the season. Very large parking lot. In short to make at least once, even if we're not history buffs. It's a fun and cultural center. Everyone finds his interest.
