Children’s Museum Natural History Museum
For a glimpse at ancient cave drawings, visit Le Thot. This prehistoric theme park works well as a companion trip to nearby caves, providing more information and special reproductions of some of the area's ancient art. The site also boasts an animal park, featuring special breeds similar to those that roamed the earth with our ancestors. It's especially fun for children. Put Le Thot and other Thonac attractions into our Thonac family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We got a combined ticket for Lascaux and Le Thot, and had a brilliant day. The animal displays at Le Thot are pretty ordinary, but we did three workshops and they were phenomenal. We (5,9,11,45 year o...  more »
  • The place does not seem to cater well for non French speakers. Even though we really liked Lascaux, this was a much less successful experience...  more »
  • Get a double ticket - Lascaux + Le Thot for a fab day out. There is a great interactive 3d presentation + " prehistoric mirror" where you feel you are in the presentation... Lots of animals there - al...  more »

  • Seems like someone has got a few animals left over from something and wondered how to make some money out of them. Upsetting thing is that it seems to have links to the the totally amazing Lascaux International Center of Art parietal and this sad place brings both down. We had half price tickets of €4 and it wasn't worth that price!
  • This was genuinely disappointing - I know it was low season, but it was half a building site and none of the demonstrations were manned. Not worth the effort. Also, not entirely certain one of the animals wasn't dead...
  • Worth visiting if you are in the area, it appeared as if it needed a bit of updating in some areas
  • kids loved it
  • Nice and very children friendly but a slight let down after Lascaux and it's magical atmosphere. Still worth a shot with the discount offered when bought with Lascaux.
