    • Visit the site of the discovery of the world's most famous prehistoric man, Cro-Magnon.

      On the authentic place where the first burial of modern man was discovered, Cro-Magnon, in 1868 :
      The museum of Abri CRO-MAGNON offers the public new ways to interact with our ancestors and to (re) discover our history.
      A holographic film, touch tablets, an immersive scenography, a wooded course on the top of the cliff are some of the astonishing installations that you will discover at Abri CRO-MAGNON.

      Newly fitted out, the CRO-MAGNON Shelter is a monument classified as a World Heritage Site. After 2 years of work, it is now open to the public, protected and saved for future generations.

      The scenographic layout of the CRO-MAGNON Shelter was designed as a real playful and interactive learning journey to meet our ancestor.

      Different reading levels offer content accessible to both the general public, children included, and more informed visitors, allowing them to free themselves from the usual clichés about prehistoric men.

    The exposition is in both French and English so tourists can also read all the information. Very interesting and all information is supported by the cave they found the first bones from cromagnons. At the end there is a nice walk through the mount. The lady that attended us was very nice and an expert in the topic!

    This was a hokey attraction that offered little information and was rather offensive to educated people. It was exciting to see where the first Cro-Magnon remains were found but the owners ruined...
