Petit Futé's opinion on CENTRE INTERNATIONAL DE L'ART PARIÉTAL - LASCAUX IV

Vintage plate 2020

After Lascaux II, Lascaux IV, the International Centre for Parietal Art, which opened in December 2016, offers, thanks to cutting-edge technology and scientific work, an almost complete reconstruction of the original cave, which was closed in 1963. It has been designed using a digital clone that has made it possible to create shells on which artists have projected 3D images of the original cave. They then reproduced them identically with the same pigments and gestures as prehistoric man to be as close as possible to the original cave. An elevator takes us to the roof of the semi-buried building, 9 meters high. In the half-light, we go down into the cave little by little and the light appears little by little. We really feel the freshness (13°C to 16°C) and the humidity. There is even a glimpse of the hole through which the discoverers passed in 1940. It's amazing. We discover the Hall of the Bulls, the Axial Diverticulum, the Passage, the Apse and the Nave with all their marvellous paintings. At the end of the guided tour, you are free to extend your visit in several museum spaces, equipped with a digital tablet that allows you to go further in understanding the techniques of reconstruction. Thanks to luminous processes, it is possible to discover drawings hidden in the stone. A tour of the parietal world is also carried out thanks to 3D projections. The aim of this centre is to sanctuarize the hill where the original cave is located. The facsimile of Lascaux II remains open. Finally, a discovery trail leaves from Montignac and follows the route taken by the 4 young boys who discovered the Sistine Chapel of Prehistory. Guided tours, more intimate and centred on the cave are offered in the summer evenings.

Les enfants ont accroché
Au milieu séjour très agréable en Dordogne, une visite au musée Lascaux 4 nous a beaucoup plu, surtout aux enfants grâce à son côté interactif.
Pas de souci pour se garer.

Il faut absolument réserver plusieurs jours à l'avance pour visiter Lascaux 4 (ou même Lascaux 2), notamment lors des périodes de vacances scolaires. Le début de la visite est guidée, avec des écouteurs pour entendre le ou la guide. Elle débute par l'extérieur puis le fac similé et se termine par une pièce où certaines portions sont reproduites et on peut en savoir plus avec la tablette mise à notre disposition. Il ne faut pas oublier de se promener sur le toit du centre pour avoir une vue différente.
