Prehistoric Park

The Prehistoric Park is devoted to cave paintings and the life of the Magdalenians. It illustrates the world of the decorated caves through photographs, videos and excellent reconstructions, including a large painted panel from the Marscoulas Cave, the Clastres network from Niaux Cave, and a facsimile of the Black Room in Niaux. Next is a short film on excavation and dating methods. The tour continues outside, where you can try your hand at various Magdalenian techniques such as hunting, wall painting and stone carving.
