    • Museum space and Archaeological activity park :
      During a guided tour, in a building with an unusual architecture, discover the history of the Pope’s cave and the life of the men who succeeded each other during a hunting stop. Thanks to authentic vestiges, come into contact with the Cro-Magnon man, his tools, his works of art and the animals that surrounded him in the Upper Paleolithic (-36,000 ; –10,000). Prehistoric art will of course be at the center of the visit to PréhistoSite. The archaeological site of Brassempouy has indeed delivered Magdalenian ornaments and engravings, and above all the largest French collection of prehistoric statuettes discovered on the same site. Among them, the Mona Lisa of Prehistory, the Lady of Brassempouy, considered as one of the jewels of prehistoric art. Come listen to his story…

      Continue the visit in the ArchéoParc, where every day the animators present demonstrations of flint pruning and ignition of fire, also initiate yourself in prehistoric hunting ! Discover the environment and the animals of the Ice Age with reconstructions of habitat and animals and real living aurochs ! A digital tour application on Smartphone and touch pads allows everyone to immerse themselves in prehistory, following in the footsteps of Cro-Magnon !

    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.

    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.
