I actually felt myself choking back tears at one point during this extraordinary museum exhibition. Everything about this place is stunning: from the architecture of the space to the guided tour to the interactive exhibits and films. I was bowled over by how much information...More

Lascaux II is a must visit for those interested in the story of the pre-historic past. It is a recreation of the actual cave(s) that have been closed to the public to prevent further deterioration of the paintings. The result is that it is worthy...More

Very good guided tour giving a lot of information about the art and the thinking on the interpretation of the paintings. The interpretive centre with very efficient personal tablet computers was fascinating for both adults and children. Even in April the centre was very busy...More

I have been visiting this site several times since 1992. Things have changed. Administratively, Lascaux 2 tickets can only be purchased on site at the cave replica. Cannot get them either at the tourist office in Montignac or at the International Center. Tours are only...More

World Heritage site for the importance of its cafe art, but the museum and tour were spectacular. Children (5,9,11) were all entertained, and adults were enthralled. Lots of tourists, so book early, but the tours are excellent and a prefect way to protect the cave.

This was our first visit here so we can't compare the new visitor center to what was here before. The ticket sellers and gift shop staff had good English and were friendly and helpful. My wife and I both enjoyed the tour very much. The...More

There are quite a few caves in the Vézère valley that boast prehistoric cave paintings. Lascaux II is the cave to see. You go to the others because the paintings are prehistoric. You go to Lascaux II because the paintings are extraordinary. After seeing Lascaux,...More

You cant fail to be impressed by the re-creation of the 17,000 year old cave paintings - and the new building is interesting too, but for the admission to be more expensive then the Louvre in Paris or the Uffizi in Florence is ridiculous! The...More

I have been trying to book Prehistoric Pass Combination ticket for 2 adults (Lascaux Center, Le Thot, and Laugerie Basse); and 2 tickets for Lascaux II. I called Lascaux Center and was told to try again. I switched browsers as well and the same result. I tried 5X already. Each time, Semitour has taken my money. My bank has confirmed that they have approved each time. So now I paid 5X, but yet, no e-tickets. I keep getting an error message after it says that my transaction has gone through successfully. I called my bank, and my bank said that Semitour has to tell them that I should be charged 1X only and not 5X. I emailed Semitour 2X and have not got an answer. I called Lascaux Center, they said that they have no record of my purchase. I asked if they could help me with online booking but they said that they can't--but asked me to try again. I have tried 5X, been charged each time, so a total of (78+ X 5), and no e-tickets. What should I do? Thank you so very much! Helen

Hi Helen, me again...so sorry this happened to you. I suggest documenting your multiple payments, including charges to your accounts, and taking it to the Center, and ask for a supervisor to resolve it on site. I could not... More
We are visiting from 23 May. We are 2 adults. 1) I am wondering if I should get tickets for bot Lascaux II and International Cave Center? We speak English. But I am thinking that, if the Lascaux II is in French, we will at least see if not understand. 2) How early should we be there for 11:06 or 1530 tour? 3) We would also like to visit Grand Roc and Laugerie Basse. Is it possible to do all four on same day? Thank you for your help! Helen

I would like to visit the "main" cave and am now confused by whether it is Lascaux 1 or 2 or 3 or 4. I can't work out from the online booking which ticket to choose and I also can't find an English tour. I am not that interested in the museum I just want to visit the replica of the original Lascaux cave. I will have kids and grandparents with me so can't afford to spend too many hours trawling visitor centers and museums! Can anyone help?

There is two options : - Lascaux Centre International (Lascaux IV) : 2h30 tour in different language. - Lascaux II : 1h tour only in french. Lascaux (the original cave) is closed.
