    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.

    Too expensive and not much to see. People are friendly but know nothing about the tablet. You can take pictures with it and fill in your email dress, but they don't know how to get it sended. They say validate your adress but it still has to be sent. Very disappointing..

  • "Thank you"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by minkeyab (Yatton, United Kingdom) on 03/06/2019

    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.

  • "Interesting daily life of Cro Magnon"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by Craig T (San Rafael, California) on 05/10/2018

    An interesting, though small, site showing how the Cro Magnon lived. First you see a little movie, then you go on a self guided tour.
