“Nicely done and worth a visit”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

This small, but well planned museum is located at the top of a gently climbing park, just north east of the Mairie/Town Hall. The #2 bus (Suillet) has a nearby stop. We could not find handicap access, but by taking our time the entry stairs were manageable. Once inside we were glad we had made the effort. There is plenty of information on Man's early history and the exhibits are very nicely done. When you're tired of standing/looking, you can visit the little auditorium/media room and choose from dozens of videos on a variety of subjects, and have a nice sit down. As you leave, look to your right and left on the "porch" at the male and female statues...try to resist taking pictures of yourselves next to them. Or not.
