This prehistoric park is the companion of Lascaux II replica cave and is about 15 minutes away by car. There is an exhibition center which tells you about paleolithic life through displays and a 3-D movie but the real treasure here is a replica of two galleries not featured at Lascaux II: the Nave and the Shaft, the latter showing the only human figure in the cave. Le Thot is also a park/zoo with live animals that are similar to their prehistoric forebears, including deer, aurochs, bisons, horses, and they recently added some wolves.

In the summer they offer many hand-on activities for children, such as painting, making fire and throwing spears.

Closed in January. You can buy tickets online, along with a combo ticket with Lascaux if you want to see both.
