  • Initially surprised that was not the original cave but only built up as a copy in a modern building. This was done to protect the original cave from tourists & natural elements that would ruin it...  more »
  • MUST SEE Unique in Human History Spectacular and so emotional So great job in reconstituing the cave to save the original individual audioguide, don't forget your heatset  more »
  • The most impressive museum experience I've had in years. I'm an experienced spelunker, and yet it was still difficult for me to tell the cave was a recreation. And the museum displays and information were fantastic from a biological and geological and social perspective.
  • Relay great effort for making this available for the public. The cave itself is very detailed and looks very authentic (at least to me) although the feeling of a real cave is not there. The drawings are amazing and it must have been great to discover this in the real cave. There is also a detailed and interactive exhibiton about the stone age and how people lived. Another great detail is the small cave in which you can create your own drawings with charcoal. A bit of a downside was that we had an Audioguide within a guided French tour. What the guide showed at the different stops didn't match our Audioguide so it was at times not so easy to always find all the details which where explained. Still a great experience and a must if you are in the area.
