Traces of life: the geology trail

Travel through 540 million years of our planet's history: Track continental drift and changing climates, discover the first forms of life on Earth and examine fossils of plants and extinct animals. These visible traces evoke for us both the immense timespan of Earth's history and the very instant the print was made.

Duration: 45 minutes

Man's footprints: the prehistoric trail

Discover the daily life of Neolithic men and women. The objects on show come from the caves, mines and dolmens of the region and make a significant contribution to our knowledge of this period, and how early groups of people organised themselves in settlements.

Duration: 45 minutes

sculpting lives: the Paul Dardé trail

Enter the brilliant world of Paul Dardé (1888-1963), unique sculptor with a "fierce and ruthless" independence. This visit allows you reconstruct the puzzle of his life, to familiarise yourself with the techniques he used and to discover his favourite themes.
