Expérience fantastique: expectacular

Expérience fantastique: History in it making. Here we find the similar cave men stories as we have seen in the USA. My guess these are much more older than the USA.

Expérience fantastique: World heritage sight not to be missed

Expérience positive: The museum displays were interesting and had descriptions in English. Entry was cheap at 3euro each. BUT this is a UNESCO World Heritage site and we expected more, for instance we wanted the cave exhibition to be more immersive, ie to feel we were walking into a cave - not just see a reproduction of the cave paintings on the ceiling.

Expérience fantastique: It's recreating the whole cage experience of Altamira and the drawings are very good! There's a big parking there, which helps, a restaurant with a menu and a beautiful environment to have a walk and see the actual entrance to the real cage. When the reservation times comes you can pass, see a short explaining video and enjoy the cage as much as you want.

Expérience positive: Bit disappointing. The caves are replicas and can understand why for preserving the original but it does look fake unfortunately. Also the other areas outside marked in the map to visit have nothing to see our do. Signposting things you can't visit seems a bit pointless.

Expérience fantastique: Excellent value for money. Very informative displays (some English text) and the recreation of the cave was extraordinary. In the museum at the end there is a video demonstrating how it was constructed. Good little cafeteria and toilet facilities. Lots of outdoor space to wait for entry time.

Expérience fantastique: Really well done recreation of the original cave, beautiful and fascinating. The exhibition exploring palaeolithic life was also excellent. We went on a Sunday morning, when it is free entry, at about 11and only had to wait 30mins for our entry time to the Neocave, there's plenty to look at while you wait.

Expérience fantastique: Loved the "neo-cave"! It is an amazing reproduction of the real site that seems to give the same feel while protecting the priceless original.

Expérience fantastique: My family and I came here on a Sunday, hoping to visit the reproduction of the famous cave of Altamira, one of the most prominent forms of rock art from the Paleolithic age, recognized by Picasso as the mankind's acme of art ... The entrance tickets on Sundays are free, and so, when we stopped over on our travel from Guipuzcoa to Asturias, we found them all booked out. Anyway, we were able to visit the museum, which was also free, fun and educational! We spent a couple of hours inside, amazed by spear ends, choppers, harpoons, and then by the many forms of rock art and mobile art on display. The visit covers a whole lot of aspects of archeology as a science and of material culture of the Paleolithic man, through videos, little windows, panels, etc etc, that will leave both adults and kids entertained. After the initial letdown of finding out that we had no hope of going in, the visit to the museum itself turned out to be absolutely fascinating. The facilities are well kept, and include bathrooms, a gift shop and a cafeteria (on Sunday, open only to 14.30).

Expérience fantastique: Wonderful place. They did and incredible work recreating the original Altamira paintings even down to the ceiling cracks. Make sure to ask any questions that you might have to the guide. They were all very passionate about the history of the cave and the surrounded ones.

Expérience fantastique: I don't have the words to properly explain the incredible work that they have done here. I'm so thankful that they have preserved the real cave of Altamira, yet have created this one of a kind museum to let visitors experience what it would be like in the real thing. Exceptional work has been done here, don't miss it!

Expérience fantastique: A www FreeElectrons.Family review: EXCELLENT museum, especially for young KIDS who can come in for FREE. We specifically had this museum as a stop during our 36-day family camping road trip from Spain to Poland and back this year. At €3 euros per adult, this is a GREAT ALTERNATIVE to the expensive cave museums in FRANCE! The only downside was that you have to get your ticket ahead early on the same day because there is no online booking. There is a restaurant in case you get hungry. €1.50 for cerveza, €1.50 for reposteria, and between €2 for bocadillos. See photo of receipt for details. There was a separate play-learning space for children but it was closed during the coronavirus pandemic when we visited. And of course, there's a souvenir shop for all kinds of interesting mementos.

Expérience fantastique: A small but complete museum that displays a replica of the famous Paleolithic cave paintings. In addition to the paintings, there are displays of human development in this part of Europe, along with abundant interpretation of community and family life of people from the time. The museum can be visited in about an hour.

Andrés Cepeda 4 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Incredible replica of the actual cave. Got the chance to go and visit the real one too and they are very similar indeed. It was and amazing experience but you have to go on Friday 09:30am to have the chance, they do a raffle and only 5 are selected for the visit.
