There are temporary exhibitions (we saw one on the animals of the age of ice with very beautiful reconstructions) and the rest of the Park, where we discover the prehistoric life over the promenade. There are demonstrations (how to fire), workshops of painting on the walls of the caves, hunting with Spears etc... Area of picnic and games... We never get bored. To do!
