Le Thot

Museum in The Vézère Valley

In an effort to bring the prehistoric age to life, Le Thot, 8km southwest of Montignac, places reproduced Lascaux cave scenes alongside displays about Cro-Magnon life and art, as well as real-life descendants of the animals the art depicts (wolves, reindeer, stags, ibex and European bison), which roam the grounds. Note that Le Thot is geared principally towards French-speaking families.
