    Small historical center on prehistory, it was quick tour. What makes it interesting are the activities carried out by animators (move a menhir, turn on fire...). I confess to being quite disappointed but I had the chance to do the hike on Friday at 4 pm by a passionate and exciting leader, which has definitely improved my afternoon, many thanks to him.

    Honestly, I'm not passionate about prehistory... and I won't be gone to the cairn if had not spoken us by everyone in the corner. The originality of the site makes it a little more than a Museum: we discover the prehistory through several workshop led by two very dynamic host and that Crier squarely the historical pepriode. Personally we attended the presentation tools, gun hunting, pottery and the preparation of the fire. All of these presentations are time flies, we discover the rest of the site quietly... even the inner part that looks more like a traditional Museum is good but it's not what makes the interest of the site. I recommend, even to the people who are not fond of prehistory

    errm; not really sure what to say; limited is the word which comes to mind. The website reckons a visit is three and a half hours, but we (two adults) managed 30 minutes. We did watch some of the fire making which was good, and some rudimentary stuff about pottery. All in french but our basic french could mostly understand, so that wasn't the problem. There were some mock ups of prehistoric and old houses and a pretend stone circle with a static demo of how they put the stones up. probably best for school outing with a keen teacher.

    Les prix sont attractifs et les employés agréables. Le site est cependant plus adapté aux enfants et les anglais ne profitent pas des mêmes explications - barrière de la langue oblige.

    Hardly any interaction, and the English spoken is very limited. Don't go if you are not from France.
