Very stipulating museum! Gave me important information about the long evolution of our species. It is very small, but nonetheless very stimulating.

If you like history, archeology or anthropology, go and have a look.Very nicely explained and interesting even for children. Brings you back in time...400000 years ago.

A small museum about a great prehistorical excavation! The well made exhibition lets you follow a big event of the local prehistory, see in moulage the campus, the tools, the food and the animals of the area.

I still think I was part of a prank here. It looks like an apartment block, so not very nice from the outside, The inside does not fair much better. It feels abandoned and neglected. Bits of rock on display without any explanation! Wasn't sure...More

Lots of info on the ancient history or the area, both general and specialised, also many interesting models and diagrams. Great value, as it's free. However, the vast majority of the info is in French, with only small amounts in English, Italianand German.

The museum is good but it is small. Don't expect to see a lot. However what you will see is nice. Especially good for children.

We took the children as a cultural visit for them; there were parts which were very interesting, nothing extraordinary but makes a pleasant change. Count about an hour for this visit.
