    The place jtself is very nice. The (replica) cave is nicely build, I would say something you want to see. You have to take a tour, which when we came was only available in French (English was apparently available the next day). This is a real disappointed, because there apparently is a lot of information to give about the drawings. This resulted in us looking at a drawing for 30 seconds, and the guide talking for 5 minutes, and we did not really know what to do with our other 4min30. This made the overall experience much less interesting. Given the fact that this centre is only a few years old, using modern technology this should not have been an issue. Taking into account the entrance of 20 euros, I can't really give more than 2 stars. Overall: 20 euros for 90 minutes, guide included but hardly understood a word, however by itself the place is nice, results in two stars for now. (with an English/Dutch guide or any form of information, I would have given 4 stars, still not 5 because of the price for 90 minutes only).

    Time machines do not exist yet, but this museum is a step closer to them! A masterpiece of a museum both in architecture and detailing of the cave replica, where professional and contagiously enthusiastic guides (like Josef) will immerse you in the story and techniques of our forefathers. The replica here, infinitely more detailed than the "Lascaux 2" one, is divided into two sections. The first, where you will step in the actual cave replica, and discover its hidden treasures as if you were inside the real one. And the second, where the trigger happy tourists can take photos of the deconstructed cave, for more advantageous photo positions, and free space from the rest of the group. If you speak french I recommend you take the "special tour" which costs only 10€ more and happens in the evening, giving you an intimate flame lit experience of the cave with just a few people. I was astonished and would definitely come back!!

    Fascinating tour of the cave art of 20,000 years ago (available in English and French). Brilliantly curated displays enjoyed by all our groups of ages 6 to 76! A must do!

    Really good. I wasn’t sure beforehand whether it was worth visiting a reproduction, but in hindsight it totally was. It brought cave paintings to life in a way that you can’t appreciate from a...
