|Carbon dating of materials discovered in the cave date the Lascaux paintings to c.15,000 BC. Discovered in 1940 they were open to the public in 1948. The combined effects of artificial lighting and 100,000 visitors per year soon caused great damage to the site. Finally, in 1963, the caves were closed to the public and restoration efforts began.

It replicates the two main chambers of the Lascaux Caves.
