    Very uninteresting experience. We only went because we got twin tickets at Lascaux (which was awesome btw). A few animals, but apart from wolf and bison nothing you wouldn't have seen just wandering around farms and forest anyway ! Might be interesting as part a school trip but otherwise don't bother.

    I very much enjoyed visiting this park. That was about nine years ago, when I was in my ice-age- cave-art craze. Yes it is relatively small but it is pleasant and well organized with a good representation of some ice age fauna. It is also peaceful: there is none of the sweaty crush that you find at the larger and obvious sites. I liked the resource center and was inspired by the selection of books dealing with the ice age. I have a very good memory of the place.

    Not worth visiting. Animations were not available ( we came at 16h after visiting Lascaux ) . There not many animals.
