How to get passes

Tickets are available at the venue. You can buy a joint ticket with Lascaux II which gives you a discount.


Visitor comments

  • "Get a double ticket - Lascaux + Le Thot for a fab day out. There is a great interactive 3d presentation + " prehistoric mirror" where you feel you are in the presentation... Lots of animals there - all those that are represented in the cave paintings at Lascaux including Bison and Przewalski's horse which are now extinct in the wild." - Trip Advisor
