    While it’s commendable to gather up and study bits of flint and tools from ancient times, displaying them in a single large room is kind of a drag. Then when you throw in mediocre old painting the average viewer doesn’t really know what to do with it. It’s all housed in a beautiful building so what is the point of all this? On a side note, a comic book exhibit was as clever and interesting as it was random.

    Beautiful building with passable displays. The immense collection of flint from the stone age fills the largest room in the museum and provides about as much stimulation as the most part of the artwork, which is a mediocre collection of some Dutch and medieval works as well as a tiny selection of local modern art. The most interesting display is in the courtyard where there are many columns, graves and carvings found in Perigeux. Luckily the price is low and free for children. Far better museums for prehistory in the area, eg the Lascaux cave centre, and to see artwork opt for a visit to one of the chateaus' private collections, eg Dinan.

    The only true disappointment in our three weekly visit at the Dordogne. The collection is shown in the most chaotic way you could imagine, in a really neglected building. What a mess. Too bad, because the collection itself is worthwile and varies from prehistoric to more modern objects. We sadly discovered more than one object is a copy or even a bad photograph however (i.e. blueprint drawing by architect Breuilh), where the originals are kept in other musea. If we had known all this we would have spent our time elsewhere.
