    The Carnac Prehistory Museum boasts one of the richest prehistoric collections in Europe. Comprising more than 6,600 objects found during archaeological digs, maps, plans and models, it presents a chronological and thematic itinerary on two levels, from the Palaeolithic to the Gallo-Roman period. Daily life in the Neolithic period is particularly well developed: don't miss the large blades of Alpine jade axes and the polished ornaments imported from Spain. These prestigious objects bear witness to the time when Carnac was a major European centre of power and wealth at the beginning of the 5th millennium BC. Workshops, demonstrations of prehistoric techniques, family visits in a special area for young visitors - there are a whole host of ways to enjoy this fascinating educational site.
