Paleosite, Saint-Cesaire

Learn all about Neanderthals and the prehistoric ages by going for a visit to the Paleosite. The park area covers almost 10 hectares (24.7 acres) of land, while the covered area spreads across 2000 sq meters (21527.8 sq feet) of the site land. The theme park offers visitors a close look at the prehistoric world and the prehistoric lifestyle. Imagine taking a journey back in time, traveling 15 billion years back and living with Neanderthals. You can also do some shopping here, as the gift shop sells a huge collection of various memorabilia and archaeological items.

  • Visit this site without having had some information, actually 3 h 30 to do a tour of the site, animations are really well explained thanks to animator archaeologist who charms us by his explanations with a lot of humor, and it is not the time past. To do this visit with children over 8 years old. I recommend this visit.

  • The title sums up our visit to the paleosite, a magical place, where one is transport in prehistoric times with a lot of realism, the care of details and rich in learning and fun animations. A dedication that is particular to our Vincha facilitator who is the guide in gold of this prehistoric site. With kindness, humour and passion you have us fill with happiness and you made this memorable day. Great work ⚒

  • Rather for the little ones
  • Park family on August 15, 2017. We're in full tourist season but the Park seems abandoned. Assaulted by huge thorns from the parking lot, the outside panels are faded and illegible. Several activities but... only once a day. Many attractions are in maintenance or HS. Access to the stands is done with the "personalized" card given at the entrance, but it's really a useless gadget that does not always work. Very disappointed.

  • Disappointed... Little accessible animations with young children, we'll forget the atlatl for less than 6 years shooting, the size of the stones and fire are made by entertainers (we would have liked to be able to test), only the paint is free (on limited niche) , paint with ochre on a false (medium) walls, no protection provided for the children and no indication of the fact that the ochre does not stain if you wash clothes in cold (too bad for parents who do not know)... Search workshop was only in the morning, too bad! A short little Park, little host, too bad it might be nice with additional resources!

  • BOF. A little aging, followed by an outdoor audiovisual installation quite short. There are interesting animations, but it's a bit long for the youngest children...

  • Site not bad for a family outing, pity that the workshops is not continuous and is that 2 times a day, too bad also that there have so many multimedia. Otherwise it's a nice to visit.
