Since the first discoveries in the 19th century, witnesses of prehistoric art have always fascinated: What is this art for? Who did it? At what time? And is it really art? This exhibition aims to try to answer these questions.
Today, new methods of study and restitution, such as facsimiles or 3D, allow to faithfully represent objects and offer comparisons between wall art, rock art and furniture. The richness and variety of the geometric decorations of the ornate objects, the signs painted or engraved on the walls, are all witnesses of a rich and varied symbolic thought that we still do not always manage to interpret. And if sometimes the meaning of certain images escapes us, their achievements continue to move and fascinate us 20,000 years later.
We offer a set of visits around the exhibition on Saturday and Sunday: - Free visit from 11 am to 6 pm - Flash visits of the exhibition: at 11 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm and 5 pm - Thematic visits: animals at 11:30 am, bone and flint at 1:30 pm, music at 2:30 pm and human performances at 4:30 pm.

Because of prestigious character of its collections, the museum of Aquitaine installed(settled) in the premises(places) of the old(former) Faculty(Power) of the Letter of Bordeaux, became a patrimonial reference in France. Kissing(Embracing) so diverse domains as archaeology or regional ethnology but also extra-European civilisations, it is also an encyclopaedic museum as shown by the big(great) wealth of its temporary exhibitions(exposures). The museum defines itself today at once as «museum of heritage »which presents collections of a big(great) interest and as «museum of civilisation» which questions the past to answer contemporary questions.
