  • Having visited Chauvet a couple of years ago we were really excited to go back and brought some friends with us. However, instead of the engaging tour guide we were so impressed with on our last...  more »
  • Definitively worth the visit - reserve at least 1 hour. You will never see something similar. It is unbelieveable how people have reconstructed and made available to the public this 36000 year old...  more »
  • The most impressive museum experience I've had in years. I'm an experienced spelunker, and yet it was still difficult for me to tell the cave was a recreation. And the museum displays and information were fantastic from a biological and geological and social perspective.
  • Relay great effort for making this available for the public. The cave itself is very detailed and looks very authentic (at least to me) although the feeling of a real cave is not there. The drawings are amazing and it must have been great to discover this in the real cave. There is also a detailed and interactive exhibiton about the stone age and how people lived. Another great detail is the small cave in which you can create your own drawings with charcoal. A bit of a downside was that we had an Audioguide within a guided French tour. What the guide showed at the different stops didn't match our Audioguide so it was at times not so easy to always find all the details which where explained. Still a great experience and a must if you are in the area.
  • Awesome place to visit!! The level of detail in the recreated cave is incredible! The guides are very knowledgeable!!
  • Amazing experience even better than i imagined. The cave replica is just on another level, just as if you were in the original site viewing the art and rock formations. Our guide was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable! Highly recommend to pay a visit.
  • Nice cave replica. The original cave paintings are recreated together with the whole cave setting. It is worth a visit.You cannot make photos inside. !!! Watch out!!! there are thieves in the parking lot. They try to enter our RV luckily our dog has scared them off. They still managed to damage our door lock.😠
