As already mentioned in other reviews this is the smaller of the two museums in Les Eyzies devoted to prehistory, and gives an excellent overview of this subject. You don't have to be a prehistory enthusiast to appreciate this museum - the information is presented...More

If you have a limited time in this area, skip the Musée National de Préhistoire, and stop here instead to get an overview of the area. It has some nice displays, good information about what to visit, and it is free. Nice restrooms as well!...More

We only had a very short time to visit, and it wasn't worth the effort to just scratch the surface. I suspect that if you had more time and more interest, it would be much more rewarding.More

It's a space. A big space. Well designed, fantastic building but what is it? It's not a museum. In sme ways it sets the scene for the wonders of the Valle but does not add anything exponentially. It has a small shop. Difficult to understand...More

Good museum, and the child's play area kept our kids (5,9,11) entertained for a while. Amazing display of genital symbols and other carved art forms. Worth doing if you're in the village.

Some decent displays and several visual productions (movies, videos) but most without any useful commentary or narrative. Good clips of historical nature how pre-historic man developed different skills to improve his quality of life.

Thoroughly enjoyed the museum. A brilliantly modern facility, free and excellent presentation of facts. It is probably more for adults.
