All reviews modern museum stone tools great museum huge collection showing how the cliff glass cases laminated cards interesting collection national museum stone age couple of hours life size prehistoric times english language two hours guided tour
Very interesting and detailed collection, filling the gaps of your cave visits and rock art excursions. Useful English leaflets. The little videos of artisans making tools and weapons were a very nice addition.
If you are in the area of the Vezere to see the ancient Neolithic caves, this museum is not to be missed. It is also a place children would enjoy. Not only are there items and bits and pieces found from our Neolithic ancestors, but...More
This museum has a LOT of artifacts. Other than wanting to just see some artifacts I think you probably need to be a post graduate level archaeologist, geologist, anthropologist etc to really get the benefit. Although there are many English language info guides along the...More
For being the center of prehistory and being in such a beautiful building, this museum isn't all that great. Very few artifacts of much interest, although there are a few. My favorite was the small carving of a bison licking itself, a very famous piece,...More
Les Eyzies is a great little French town on the river, complete with fine restaurants and places to stay! But the museum was really disappointing, and I am an archaeologist who loves real museums! I do not see why anyone would go here unless you...More
If you've visited Dordogne in France, you may have seen some of the caves like Lascaux with breath-taking paintings that are 15,000-20,000 years old. If you want to know something about the people who did these paintings (and wall engravings and sculptures), this museum explains...More
Laid out in a very user-friendly format, the museum tells us a lot about our distant ancestors. That said, I think the subject matter needs to be of personal interest to you, otherwise parts of the displays are repetitive in nature and content. Like, how...More
It has been said before, and I agree, there are a lot of stone tools ! At the entrance , the life-size Mammoth is fantastic, the outside terrace with the statue of the neolithic man, gives great views over the valley ! The mammoth exhibition...More

We did not have enough cash and they did not take Master Card or American Express card so we had to use our Debit card and the number was used 7 months after our visit for 3 purchases but our bank fraud department was alerted and cancelled our card no more fraudlulent activity will continue. I hope the employee that did this is not still working there but wanted to warn others to bring cash and do not use bank debit cards. I just wonder if charges for "2 entrees" in this case means two meals from a restaurant or does it mean "2 tickets for entrance" to the museum? Either way, the charges occured 7 months after our visit and there was another very large attempted charge in Les Eyzies. Very disappointing... we are thankful that our bank stopped the charges in time. Otherwise, the theft of money from our bank account could have continued.
