  • Great Park of the prehistory. Everything is done for a good day. Preferably when the weather. 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!

  • We visited the Park, on a half-day, it's a minimum, with 10 children, ages 14 and 17, everyone there found his account friendly, parking at the entrance of the vast park and very well maintained you can choose to start from inside or ex terieurs, functions of your schedules and external workshops all workshops are also interesting for children as for adults, the playful approach is really a good idea, stakeholders are very listening, a special to mention the archaeologist (fire workshop) who dispenses his knowledge, with good humor and skill really delighted with our visit, we were 7 persons in total
