  • English
    • The Brassempouy ArcheoPark is a museographic space retracing the history of archaeological discoveries made on the prehistoric site of Brassempouy, the Pope’s cave, since the 19th century. Guided tours of the archaeological collections are offered daily by cultural mediators, some of which are suitable for children.

      In a green setting, the ArchéoParc de la Dame allows visitors to immerse themselves in the heart of Prehistory with reconstructions of nomadic habitats and plant cover of the time. Animals play an important role here with reconstructions of full-sized prehistoric animals and real living aurochs. Every day, cultural mediators bring to life the gestures of our ancestors through demonstrations of flint cutting and the lighting of fire, and invite visitors to learn about prehistoric hunting. During the school holidays, additional workshops are also offered such as prehistoric painting, jewelry making, sculpting statuettes, archaeological excavations without forgetting the sculpture of the Lady !

      A digital tour application for the ArchéoParc has also been developed to extend this adventure into the heart of the Ice Age.

      Note since 2017, the PréhistoSite has been labeled with the "Tourism Quality" brand, a sign of its commitment to the quality of services and public reception.

      Holiday Workshops !
      During the school holidays (Zone A) we offer workshops to learn about the gestures of our ancestors in addition to guided tours of the museum, demonstrations and initiation to prehistoric hunting in the ArchéoParc.

    We spent the entire day on site with our 5 years old son. We took the 3 activities package which are worth it. If you don’t take any activities, you won’t have much to do there. The staff was really knowledgeable and helpful. If you go there on aMonday, the cafe on site is closed but there is a farm 1 km away where you can have a great lunch.

    I never knew that such carvings from this period existed. Excellent tour and in a very pretty village not far from where I was staying at Marpaps.
