Agenda 2015

For its first cultural season, the Musée-Forum  invites the public to discover the prehistory in a sensitive, playful and erudite way, through exhibitions, meetings and entertainment for all.
The theme of the shelter and the hut was chosen as the theme of programming, and has led to the development of a participatory project implemented for the territory entitled "Shelter, my cabin," conducted with artists and students from neighboring schools.

Several ways were explored, such as safe shelter as a place full of poetry, or updates cabin construction scenes of perishable materials, storytelling with the shelter as a source of imagination, conferences, but also films and documentaries to discover caves ... a whole program to discover from April to November in Aurignac's Museum.
