The musée de la préhistoire in Quinson

Discovering the first inhabitants of the Provence

The first inhabitants of the Alpes de Haute Provence settled between Quinson and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Therefore, Quinson is the town that houses a museum dedicated to the prehistory of the region of the Verdon. This modern museum, designed by the architect Norman Foster (who also designed the Viaduct of Millau) is the biggest museum of Europe dedicated to the prehistory. It gathers all the archeological heritage of the region of the Verdon, presenting it in a way to make us understand the life of our ancestors in the Provençal caves.
