A very rich collection of Prehistory. Retraces the evolution of man in the Brittany region since Paleolithic times (450,000 BC) up to the middle ages.
Thousands of items on display from Brittany archaeological digs/excavations (fouilles)
Be aware though that the information accompanying each item and the stories the museum tells, are for the most part only in French, and there's a huge amount of reading to be done - hours worth really (that even with my 15 years French was exhausting and quite beyond me)
And without being able to read all the text, there's a lot of historical significance that is just missed entirely.
Opens 10 am – 6 pm with 1 hour closed for lunch, 12.30 – 1.30. Entry: 5E

Address: 10 place de la Chapelle, Carnac
There are 2 burial mounts in the Carnac area. One is the Saint-Michel tumulus and the other the Moustoir tumulus.
Apart from those tumulus there are also dolmens.
If my memory serves me well, we visited the Kercado dolmen. Next to this dolmen there is a burial chamber that can be visited. And i must say it gives quite an eerie feeling to walk into such a burial mount and think about how long ago people used it as a way to honour their dead.
This dolmen and the burial chamber are on private property. But both can be visited.

Whole fields filled with these giant stones and for what purpos? All i could do was stand next to the low fence (you´re not allowed to come onto the fileds) and watch in awe.. Even after all this time you can´t help but think that they must have had a very good reason to place all those stones in a field like that.. And we´re not talking about small stones either..
All those megaliths were errected between 4500 bc and 2000 bc. Carnac has 3 of these large fields with stones lined up. And in total around 3000 stones can be found throughout the area
