Description

Located in the heart of the Vézère Valley in the Dordogne, between Le Bugue and the Lascaux caves of Montignac, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac is a town deserving of its nickname, "World Capital of Prehistory". The National Prehistory Museum is the ideal introduction to your tour of the area's prehistoric sites, listed as World Heritage with UNESCO. Discover the oldest traces left by man exhibited through a particularly vivid approach within a beautiful contemporary building built into the cliff, an integral part of this trip through time. The exhibition galleries reveal a wealth of stone tools, bone and ivory decorative objects, and forensic reconstructions (life-sized sculptures of prehistoric people and animals based on skeletal remains) to enable you to understand 400,000 years of hominid evolution.
