  • English
    • The Brassempouy ArchéoParc is a museum space retracing the history of the archaeological discoveries made on the prehistoric site of Brassempouy, the Pope's cave, since the 19th century. Every day guided tours presenting the archaeological collections are offered by cultural mediators, some of which are suitable for children.

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

      A digital visit 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 "Qualité Tourisme" brand, a guarantee of its commitment to the quality of services and public reception.

      The Holiday Workshops!
      During 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.

    Fascinating place with really knowledgeable staff who are passionate about the site and it's history. We look forward to going back when the grotto is open to the public. Only marked 4 stars as the grotto wasn't open, but it is well worth a visit.

    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.
