Around 15km (9 miles) from Lascaux but well worth the detour, this is a child-friendly overview of how Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon humans lived. The exhibits are set around a wooded walkway through a 5-hectare (12-acre) park, with recreations of scenes from daily existence—such as a woolly mammoth hunt, and a family making tools and cooking around an open fire—that really bring the history to life. Workshops during school holidays and summer months teach skills such as fire-making, flint-cutting, and spear-throwing. La Madeleine, a riverside cave village just a few minutes’ drive away, also makes an excellent visit.
