A great walk with incredible views and a lot of fun hands on learning. I brought the kids here spur of the moment, but it was worth it. They had a great time throwing spears, painting cave walls, learning about making flint tools and fires and how prehistoric man lived. The staff was very friendly and highly knowledgeable. I highly recommend it.
Excellent place to take the kids on a nice day. Attractions include museum about stone age life in the valley, try your hand at cave painting and spear throwing, a nice cafe/restaurant and caves with a stream running through it.
Family enjoyed the experience. Our second time, and always more to do.
A great way to get a feel for what life was like for the cavemen in the area.
Choiset LaurenceA super nice with my 5 year old daughter who has adored... A captivating ultra staff which is the key to this exciting day with activities that allow to immerse themselves in the story. The museum is very well done. I highly recommend it. It pays not to mine on the parking... But the surprise and the Park is largely up to a park in the capital! Bravo!
