Pour bien vivre votre expérienceToutes les mesures sanitaires nécessaires sont mises en place : - la limitation du nombre de visiteurs par salle (300 maxi dans le Centre simultanément), - un animateur par salle qui assure la désinfection des postes après chaque passage, - une charte mise en place afin d'assurer leur sécurité, le port du masque obligatoire, les distances de sécurité, la mise à disposition de gel hydroalcoolique, - des délimitations sont tracées au sol à l'accueil du site et dans les salles afin que chaque personne respecte la distance de sécurité. - la visite intérieure est accessible en quasi-totalité, à l’exception de certains ateliers demandant de la manipulation par le visiteur, temporairement indisponibles. Cependant, le visiteur pourra toujours se comparer à l'homme de Néandertal dans la salle Morpho et approfondir ses connaissances dans la salle de la Découverte.
Equipped with the latest technology, the center is covered and air-conditioned, with 2000 square meters of floor space and 2 hectares of natural landscape and forest. Here, you are invited to meet Neandertal. Your adventure will go through the discovery of the archaeological site (which is accessible with a panoramic elevator), before you discover the animations that will immerse you into a journey that began 15 billion years ago and continues up to the emergence of Humanity.
You will walk in the footsteps of your distant cousins and compare yourself to them...
Among the main events on the schedule :
- the projection on a giant screen of the 4k Dolby surround documentary "Pierrette en terre animale'', with which you vill discover the prehistoric fauna, which Ubisoft© and Far Cry Primal images bring back to life.
- - "In the footsteps of Pierrette": an original experience in Virtual Reality, where the visitor plays Pierrette and makes a place for themselves within the hunter-gatherer clan.
- 3D animations and interactive workshops, demonstrations of prehistoric techniques on weekends and school vacations.
The visitors will experience a new escape game, a 60-minute immersive game in which the group of players is trapped in an archaeological universe from which they must escape by solving puzzles.
