Its ambition is to make you discover the modernism and the know-how of the occupants of the cave through their remains, some of which are of great technical and artistic prowess.

An inestimable collection of remarkable pieces including the famous Azilian pebbles!

Among the most famous pieces housed in the museum, you can admire the reproduction of the famous ornate thruster named "the fawn with birds", considered one of the masterpieces of Paleolithic art.
Other highlights of the visit, the exhibition of the only human testimony of the cave, a Magdalenian skull, presented with its scientific reconstruction and the presentation of the Azilian through its microliths and painted pebbles so typical of Mas-d'Azil .

The visit takes place on two levels:
• The ground floor hosts temporary exhibitions and reproductions of cave paintings and wall engravings, located in inaccessible galleries.
• The first floor (two rooms): The first presents the magnificent collections of prehistoric objects found in the cave: weapons, tools, sculpted, engraved and decorated movable art objects of admirable quality (including the famous Fawn with birds ). The second will make you discover the Azilian civilization with the famous painted pebbles.
