    Wow this was an amazing museum and artfully done. Went during low season so we practically had the sites to ourselves.

    The site is very impressive but it doesn't cater for international audiences as well as it could do. We were given tablets with English guides on them but the software was badly implemented. When following the tour if you moved to the wrong part of the cave it switched to the next audio before the last part finished with no way to go back. There was als no visual guide during the cave part. The interactive AR parts were also a bit flakey too. It's also worth noting the outside toilets have no paper, or soap, and some didn't have locks.

    A great centre, which houses a perfect replica of the cave, with many other activities. State-of-the-art Audioguides. They are connected to the different parts of the place that when you enter a specific part of the museum, it automatically explains about that part.

    2 / 5 Reviews posted by frogcarguy (Denison, Texas) on 29/10/2023

    First of all, the building is off putting--starkly modern with cold cement, steel, and glass. And the inside is no better--and this for a museum of prehistoric art. But what Lascaux II has and...
