To discover, see and do...
The Centre Archéo Topo is an interactive interpretation centre devoted to researching and promoting the prehistoric archaeology of the Upper North Shore region. Its avant-garde concept and exceptional collection offer a captivating look at the lifestyle of prehistoric nomads and why they were attracted to the Upper North Shore. The dynamic exhibition is a hands-on experience, introducing visitors young and old to archaeology and prehistory, using interactive games. In the laboratory, a challenge based on a real scientific mission uses objects discovered during digs. Armed with clues and advice from the guides, visitors become archaeologists and discover for themselves the history of the objects and that of this unique site inhabited for 8,000 years.
