FREE INTRODUCTION TO PREHISTORIC ART

During the autumn half-term holidays, on Wednesday 27th, Thursday 28th October, and Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th November, children are welcome to participate in a free introduction into prehistoric art. Just like our ancestors, they paint primitive motifs on a stone, using natural pigments and charcoal: mammoths, horses, bulls, deer and more. This activity, which complements the Prehisto-Dino Park visit, allows children to discover the different materials and techniques used by their ancestor, Cro-Magnon man. The children get to take their works of art home.

  • This activity is suitable for children aged 4 and over.
  • Duration: approximately 20 minutes.
  • Book by email or telephone.

A TRICERATOPS FAMILY CHALLENGES OUR T-REX

The evolution of the species from the big-bang to the Neolithic. Visit Prehisto Dino Park in Lacave between Rocamadour and Souillac in the Lot

A 5-metre female triceratops and her baby have come to the park to take on our Megalosaurus. Breathing, watching, nodding their heads and swishing their tails, these dinosaurs could be the real thing. Watch out!

The battle of the giants showing from 19th May to the end of September.

DISCOVER THE GROTTE DES CARBONNIÈRES

Located on the Prehisto Dino Parc trail, the cave known as the Grotte des Carbonnières offers an exceptional underground landscape. The subtle, LED lighting enhances the thousand-year-old formations. Stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, pillars, waterfalls, draperies, and columns are revealed along a 350-metre-long stair-free walkway. Sound and light show.
