Called in whilst passing and was interesting to learn about the use of caves as houses throughout the years.

We came on a hot day with our toddler. The signs say the walk can be done with a stroller, but I think you’d have a miserable time. Use a baby carrier. The displays were cheesy, but the info presented, especially in the last 2/3...More

Our 2 year old child absolutely loved it. Lots of model animals for him to try to find. Very interesting walk, great to see real animals at the end. 8€ per adult - very good value for money. Staff not so welcoming!

A good introduction to prehistoric life and how troglodytes lived. Receptionist very helpful. The only negative I would say was that it was not a good idea to have live animals on the site.

I love history and have read a lot about prehistoric times. This exhibit brought it all to life. Then showed how the caves were used in medieval times and were still lived in until 1950's.

My husband and I enjoyed our trip to the slightly" Dysneyfied" prehistoric caves. It cave a fascinating insight of the lives of the early cave dwellers. We wished that we had had our grandchildren with us

We went with our 7-year-old grandson and he loved it! Some people have suggested that it's a bit tacky with the various posed figures around, but it really gives a great impression of life in prehistoric and mediaeval days. We'd certainly recommend it highly for...More

We just happened to stop here and popped in for a visit. It was superb. The kids were enthralled and avidly read all the literature available.

The walk recreates what cave and medieval occupation of the caves might have looked like, and is particularly helpful for kids to visualise - and is really quite sweet, with lots of interesting details and animals to spot. The caves themselves are magnificent, and the...More
