The Aurignacien Gallery

The Aurignacien Gallery provides the perfect complement to your visit helping you to understand who our prehistoric ancestors were, where they came from and how they lived. Roaming these populated steppes means encountering the terrifying cave lion, the mighty megaceros deer and even the woolly mammoth. Discover all the secrets of the fauna and flora of our closest ancestors’ (homo-sapiens) world. Immersive films, touch screens and themed areas round off your visit. Prehistoric workshops and events will delight your “young Aurignacians” during the school holidays…
