Le Thot, Thonac

1.7
#13 of 25 in Museums in Dordogne
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.

    Of course this is EuroDisney or Beauval (no criticism don't get me wrong) but a park that presents animals descending direct those who inhabited our planet thousands of years ago. Certainly few animals are in good health and healers are really great pro and we learn a lot of specifics on each species. The strong point of the Park are the workshops offered throughout the day (ticket purchase location) is the opportunity to meet passionate facilitators and exciting (special mention to Alexandra, Claire and Marlene) we tested parietal art, hunting, and lamp to fat but if we had had the time we would have made the total. (Flint adornment...) The replica of the Lascaux cave is nice too. Come on little flat for the 3d film that has a super interesting content but which deserves 1 bit of young. Finally in short we were gone to stay 2 hours maximum. We finally left super happy having spent 7 hours in the Park! So if you want to learn and have fun, if you want to meet passionate people, if you're not looking for big production. ... don't delay. For others: too bad Ps: the Lady of the staff is super friendly and if it seems obvious this is not everywhere the case!

    This Wildlife Park to the old-fashioned charm not necessarily worth the detour not obliged to take the ticket with Lascaux

    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...

    Disappointing experience. There is a lot of advertising about wolves, but there were just 2 hidden somewhere in a small cage.

    Worth visiting if you are in the area, it appeared as if it needed a bit of updating in some areas

    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.
