    Bunker-like overbuilt structure reminiscent of communist era. (Big, ugly, overwhelming...) what an eyesore in the landscape and a burden on the environment. Thousands of tons of concrete, wasteful and repulsive. it doesn't feel natural, it contradicts the idea of a "cave". the architect should be shot. ZERO stars for that. inside, however, is a different story. Despite KNOWING it is just a facsimile, we felt the art was very well done, and I had to remind myself it is just a copy. 5 stars for that. overpriced at 20 euro, I guess we have to pay off the mortgage for the ridiculous concrete monster.

    It seems like COVID-19 isn't taking part at Lascaux IV as the groups are way too crowded and aren't controlled well. No one can keep 1 meter distance. Groups are mixed walking through each other. The cave is too small to go with 30 participants. We didn't see a lot as we were at the back of the line. If you were able to see the explaination, it's worth the price. If not it's a ripoff.

    A stunning reproduction of the original caves housed in a state of the art building. An entertaining and knowledgeable guide made the long journey worthwhile. As with some other reviews the group size was too large to respect social distancing.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by fairbutcritical (london) on 04/11/2019

    This is a slick operation that is well thought out. Re-creations of the how it was discovered, an exact life size replica of the caves followed by the “atelier” where you could see parts of it in...
