    Everything about this place was excellent. The building unique,the guided tour and friendliness amazing. Parking my camper no problem. Flower display at the front superb. The caves and workshop we're so well done. Brilliant day out. If you haven't been yet put it on your bucket list.

    Great Installation, faithful recreation. Amazing facility and design. Just : seemed like our tour-guide (albeit nice) was not very herself informed of the exhibit. She often said , its this way because its a mystery, or , its up to you and your own imagination. While artistically nicely said, I'm sure there are academic and anthropological explanations to the cave paintings then: its a mystery.

    Try to do the small group "prestige" tour if you can as the experience is much better. The Museum which he you see after visiting the cave reconstruction is very high tech and with top notch information. I found the museum store very nice if a bit pricey.
