  • Located in a quiet and shaded place, the prehistoric Center of the Cairn of Saint-Hilaire-La-Forêt, in the Vendée, allows children but also for adults to discover how early humans lived. Take your picnic and quietly follow the instructions in the guide that will receive you upon arrival. You have plenty of time to participate in each of the proposed activities. Facilitators are super friendly with a special mention to the "shaman" who has to live in the Paleolithic era... He has a crazy charisma and captures the attention of young and old as a person with his stories that make twinkle in the eyes of toddlers. To each summer vacation, my grandchildren want to go see "how the first men lit the fire and hunted". And enthusiast and collector of prehistoric objects, each time I'm having a great time. At you now.

  • The Neolithic explained passionately by exceptional entertainers. Thanks to Jo for his presentation of the tools of prehistory, the demonstration of hunting and fire as well as the young leader of the pottery workshop and displacement of menhir. What talent they have to instruct us, young and old, in exciting us with humor, which does not spoil anything! Bravo and congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. standing and their small children, Albane and Marc de St Avertin in Touraine.

  • Despite the bad weather we had a superb day in the company of the 3 leaders of the Park you can see are passionate about their craft and we made love prehistory their animations are very well organized and very interesting. There are plenty of workshops different discovery of fire, moving from a menhir, pottery etc;... and even if you miss an animation don't worry animations are repeated in the day it really allows to enjoy the Park. The Museum is very well done also with out a recap movie very well done... There are more learned in one day on prehistory in several years on the benches of the thank you and bravo school our girls loved!

  • Very cool People lovely items to do. Kids loved it.
  • Hardly any interaction, and the English spoken is very limited. Don't go if you are not from France.
  • Very interesting and child friendly
  • Super savvy and dynamic presenter. Small friendly survey for children. Interesting and impressive. Correct rates less than 30 for us 6. The garden deserves a cleaning before opening to the public... :)
