Prehistoric Museum of The Gorges du Verdon

Located in Quinson, in the heart of the Verdon, the Gorges du Verdon Museum of Prehistory presents the results of archaeological digs carried out in the Verdon for over 50 years. A trip back in time for all with its circuit of alternating scenes from everyday life in prehistoric times, interactive displays and original archaelogical artefacts.

Designed by the architect Norman Foster, the museum is one of the biggest Museums of Prehistory in Europe. It is considered the most important of its kind in Europe, opened in 2001 and has more 4000 m² of premises dedicated to permanent or temporary exhibitions.

The permanent exhibition traces the main stages of the human adventure in Provence, thanks to a circuit of some twenty spaces to travel chronologically, evoking a million years, the formation of the Verdon in Roman times.
