This is expensive and overblown. The new visitors centre is a really fine and extravagant piece of architecture, the car parking is well thought out and access is easy. The advance booking via the website would not let us book a timed entry on the...More

I first heard about the Lascaux Cave when I was 10 years old, but it finally took almost 40 years to get there. Although at first somewhat sceptic when I learned that the original cave is no longer accessible since 1963, the replica left me...More

The Lascaux Cave is an affirmation of our enduring humanity. About 19,000 years ago, humans anatomically exactly like us made this timeless art. We will never know the meaning of the exquisite paintings of horses, bison, stags, and those magnificent aurochs in the Hall of...More

Many years ago I visited Lascaux 2 which was the copy of the original cave system that public access is denied because of the risk that breath will damage the thousands of year old paintings. This we enjoyed as it was educational and not overcrowded....More

The replica caves and paintings are spectacular and the new visitor centre is very modern and impressive. But please, get the technology sorted out! Each visitor is given an interactive tablet with headphones, but in our group of 30-40 people there must have been 10...More

I have been to this cave several times since 1992, and things have changed. Lascaux 2 tickets can only be purchased on site at the cave replica. You cannot get them either at the tourist office in Montignac or at the International Center, now called...More

The artworks at Grotte de Lascaux, whilst reproductions, are still amazing and very worthwhile to see, however we were a little disappointed with the administrative aspects of our visit. Arrived at 9.30am, the 11.06am English-language guided tour was sold out, the next available English-language tour...More
