In more than 1,000m² of floorspace, the Museum of Lodeve offers you three trails - three dizzying, playful and moving journeys, for both children and adults.

The "Traces of Life" circuit recounts the story of the Earth since the explosion of life 540 million years ago.

The "Man's Footprints" circuit tells you about Prehistory with humour and poetry.

The "Sculpting Lives" circuit invites you into the eccentric world of the sculptor Paul Dardé.

Also discover the museum's temporary exhibitions on our website.
