A Prehistoric cave like you have never seen before

Discover brand-new Lascaux IV International Center of Parietal Art. The museum is a triumph of technology: unlike any other cave visits, Lascaux 4 employs different set designs, displays, state-of-the-art interactive workshops and immersive technology to bring it to life.

For the very first time, all of Lascaux original cave is revealed. This new center features an interactive gallery experience that blends Art, History and Culture with intelligence and sensitivity. At the heart of the experience you will discover a life size, state of the art facsimile cave that reveals the wonders of Lascaux as they were first seen.

In 2018, the museum was listed on Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Places to visit saying: “The Snohetta-designed complex features some 600 prehistoric paintings and 1,000 engravings, all painstakingly re-created by a team of two dozen artists working from physical castings and advanced 3-D digital scans of the original artwork”!

After the visit and some time for personal discovery, the tour will also take you along the Vezere Valley for stops in Les Eyzies and Saint Léon village depending on timing.

After the tour, return to Sarlat.

  • What is the main difference between Lascaux II and Lascaux IV?

    Lascaux II cave is the first replica that was made of the original Lascaux Cave (Lascaux I). We still organise private tours to Lascaux II cave as there is a special ambiance that one can feel as you visit. Lascaux II cave visit only presents 2 of the main rooms of the original cave but this does mean that you see most of the Paleolithic Art. On this site, there is nothing but the cave to visit.

    Lascaux IV is the most recent replica of the original cave. The replica presents the original cave in its entirety and has used all the latest technology to make the Paleolithic Art look completely identical. The cave is located withing the International Center of Paleolithic Art which means that you have other possibilities. You will begin with the tour of the Cave and then will access different rooms that questions the place Lascaux has in cave art and its links with contemporary creation.

    Whether you book the tour through us or independently, you have to take the tour of the cave. If you book the tour through our company, you will be introduced to the visit of the cave by one of our expert guides. More important, we pre-book the English tours for our small groups and have a direct access to the main attraction.
