Musee National De Prehistoire, Les Eyzies-de-tayac-sireuil Reviews

  • Laid out in a very user-friendly format, the museum tells us a lot about our distant ancestors. That said, I think the subject matter needs to be of personal interest to you, otherwise parts of the displays are repetitive in nature and content. Like, how many flint artefacts does one need to see? To illustrate my point about whether to visit or not, I myself thought I could take it or leave it. On the other hand, my wife who has a deep interest in archeology, loved it. On the top level, there is access to an amazing older structure built into the rock of the cliff face; really worth a look.

  • Well worth a visit. A modern museum with guides on various displays in English although some were not available on the day. A shame the cafe was closed but there is a rest area with vending machines for hot and cold drinks. Set by the amazing rock outlets with a fab view of Les Eyzies. Go.

  • Very detailed and comprehensive, videos particularly useful for non French speaking visitors. Look out for the collection of explanation cards in English that help to explain exhibits and contents. Great view from the terrace at cliff level.

  • This was an outstanding museum. Sometimes the order of exhibits can be confusing, but the staff with be kind enough to help you. I learned so much about prehistory and Loved the displays.

  • This is probably one of the better museums on prehistory in the world. The museum is located in the Vézére Valley, and most artifacts, there are thousands of them on display, were found in the immediate region. The museum is housed in a modern building and the staircase leads through earth layers corresponding to the time course on display on the relative floors. Some beautiful life size representations of prehistoric animals like the mammoth and a megaloceros are truely impressive. The displays with the prehistoric artifacts are layed out in several clever ways. A massive display case stretching over 50 meters functions as a timeline clearly showing stone tool development throughout the prehistoric period. Other display cases focus on the technical advances, and deal with several themes like tools, weapons, fire, harpoons, dogs as well as fauna of the ice age. Some great video displays showing how tools were made and used, bringing to live the artifacts in the display cases. On the second floor archeological digs have been recreated and the focus shifts from individual artefacts to culture art and society. Here are some truely beautiful examples of prehistoric art on display as well as a few carvings, recreated graves and jewellery. There is a special corner for the children to learn about ice age living, animals and care of babies. It may not be the biggest museum in the world but it has a wealth of artefacts, beautifully displayed and explained. All text is available in French, German and English. Definitely worth a visit, you can spend several hours in this museum easily.
