Interesting museum with information about the ruined chateau it is housed within. For us though, the highlight was the prehistoric collections. Great stuff.

A fascinating place to visit if you're interested in pre-history. There are some excellent explanations about how to make flint tools. Chateau and Museum have irregular tours in English.

Although I'm not too interested in museums or things prehistoric, I couldn't help but admire how the ruins of the Chateau had been rebuilt with a modern twist which somehow seemed to accentuate the old. Very well laid out and although no English notices, the...More

It's a fun and educational place for your kids, the building itself it's really impressive with big windows and sunlight everywhere, makes it even more appealing

We loved the wooly mammoth and the pre-historic elk! No cafe, but a huge picnic area and lovely gardens.

I appreciate people we have spoken to do not like the new building attached to the old chateau but I think it looks excellent facilities are good too, as well as the grounds and car park spacious. And what a location.
