Lascaux II features replicas of the famed Lascaux Cave's 17,000-year-old Paleolithic paintings, which are only 200 m (650 ft) away. Discovered in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the original cave attracted 1,200 visitors a day. By 1955, carbon dioxide and light had begun to damage the paintings. In 1963, the cave was shut down to preserve the art. The museum opened in 1983. Look for a replica of the cave's Great Hall of Bulls and the Painted Gallery.

Beautiful discovery for us and the children of 7 and 10 years. We hesitated with Lascaux 4 but nothing beats a good visit with a guide who loves and knows his craft. Tablets and robots will not replace a good guide. Thank you for this beautiful visit.
