    It's a very nice walk below the huge overhanging cliff, a few classic houses seem to hide right below the rock. It's a bit hard to see the traces of the ancient Mesolithic era, it might have faded before our untrained eye because it's about 17,000 to 12,000 years ago what we are looking at. A small exposition shows some ancient objects found, a reconstructed habitat the size and material used. We combined our visit to take a look in the nearby mineral cave Grand Roc, it's yet another result of time to see the many crystallised rocks created by nature. We did not find a touristic exploited amusement parc, some kids just saw a huge rock and huts they might do better. Walking through the dark Grand Roc cave brought some excitement. But we all seemed to agree, it's a nice walk with something very special to see right below a huge cliff.

    Nice, but very little. Everybody is very friendly and helpful and I suppose they did their best to add to the experience by introducing the tablet activities. The 3D film could be improved.

    Feels like they made something out of nothing for this attraction. A short 3d film and a tablet based interaction about early man, in no great detail. Aimed at kids really. Would not recommend on its own as a visit.

    Thank you to the lovely staff who made this such a great place to visit. Going anywhere with three young children can be difficult, but staff showed patients and engaged our 3 and 4 year old.
