Partis pour visiter le parc de la prehistoire en famille pour les journées du patrimoine, nous avons été ravis. Tarif reduit pour tous!

We initially attended the first archaeology workshop (workshop where we were alone and it was really very nice and informative both for our daughter to us) thanks to the host. Continuation of the visit by the second fire workshop and tools: speed and efficiency to achieve the fire. Host nice and humorous. Thank you for having sent us his knowledge and his passion. Then the workshop towards hunting. The top clear explanation then direction parietal art workshop where we had our only disappointment of the day because the facilitator took the time to explain the workshop (the only child on the workshop) we waited until he finished a discussion with a lady before beginning the workshop but seeing 5 minutes he was not finishing his conversation, we asked if we could start the workshop, he replied that yes but then no explanation we was given on this art and its tick. Therefore, our daughter drew on the wall she wanted while this gentleman continued his talk. We left the workshop without a Word from him a little disappointed... Then we took advantage of this wonderful park with this magnificent view nearby finally we went to the Museum of the Giants and here again we were delighted. Very rewarding visit thanks to audioguides for adults than for children. Park to recommend
