With its rich history and prehistory, the Dordogne is very rich in theme parks. So there is more than enough to do for families with children.
At a distance of 5 to 25 km you will find the following parks:
Roc de Cazelle (Les Eyzies) Prehistoric park where the lives of our distant ancestors have been recreated, right where they lived. In addition to the forest park and the prehistoric caves, you can also take a look at the rocky terraces and swamps.
Abri Cro-Magnon (Les Eyzies) This new combination park-museum shows everything about life in prehistoric times.
The Prehisto Parc (Tursac) This prehistoric park gives a nice picture of life in prehistoric times by imitating prehistoric animals, cavemen and their habitats and conditions
Roque St. Christophe (Tursac) This cliff is one kilometer long and enthroned about one hundred meters above the road and the river Vézère. This impressive settlement has been inhabited from early prehistoric times (55,000 years ago) to the early Middle Ages. Twenty places can be seen such as the medieval construction site, forge, drum winch (type of winch), quarry, armory and kitchen of the fortress. Interesting for young and old. This attraction is on the UNESCO World Heritage List for a reason.
La Madeleine (Tursac) This shelter is a prehistoric hideout under an overhanging cliff near Tursac. Discoveries have been made from more than 20,000 years ago. The shelter was put into use again in the Middle Ages. On top of the cliff stands the medieval castle. This attraction is on the UNESCO World Heritage List for a reason.
Village Le Bournat (Le Bugue) This village is a special open-air museum that shows local life from around 1900, lots of activities for the whole family!
Aquarium du Perigord Noir (Le Bugue) The Aquarium Périgord Noir is the largest private freshwater aquarium in Europe. On more than 4000 m2, you will discover 70 basins with 3 million liters of water, where you can view more than 6000 animals. In the Alligator Park, a beautiful Louisiana environment of more than 2000 m2, you can discover alligators, anacondas, iguanas and caimans... and at the Bayou Farm you can feed baby alligators.
Les Cabanes de Breuil (St. André d'Allas) This special collection of sheds and houses built without cement with "lauzes" (flat natural stones) is located on a farm between Sarlat and Les Eyzies. The buildings probably date from the 19th century, although no one knows exactly when they were made. The roofs have no trusses and the domes are made by simply stacking stones on top of each other.
