  • English
    • The National Museum of Prehistory is located at the heart of a group of prehistoric sites, in the town of Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil, which have provided a large collection of objects. These caves and rock shelters, in the heart of the Périgord Noir, have been occupied throughout prehistoric times, continuously telling us the story of our most distant ancestors. This museum reveals their daily life to you: how they dressed, hunted, or cut tools, but also what their homes looked like? You will also admire magnificent works of art very symbolic, to imagine their beliefs ... It is a very animated museum, with reconstructions and videos, guided tours with themes, workshops for children ...

    Impressive museum. Great displays and interesting if that's what you're into. As it was the low season while we were there, the staff seemed surprised we were there. None of them proved very helpful. Very slow service. Lots of small jobs any of them could be doing but at least six of them just standing/sitting around playing on their phones. Outside stairs coming down from the roof were very slippery and covered in mould. The signs to the old museum still exists and sound be taken down as it's very confusing as a visitor.

    A must see when you visit the Valley. The summer heat not humid so was very pleasant. The Museum though was awesome and I appreciate that finally the truth is being revealed about prehistoric man 👨‍🦰. If you pay attention you will see it too. I only wish I had the time to visit the acheological sites. Perhaps next year. The people where all very helpful respectful and polite. This can't be said about many tourist regions. Enjoy.

    Great experience - plenty of interesting items on the display. One thing which grabbed particularly my attention was a special are for kids where they can interact and learn. Well done!
