This could be Science .. this could be Education ...
But it is fun for sure. Creation vs evolution has taken a fun twist.
I'd like to visit. I don't buy into evolution as it is presented without
God's guiding hand in it ... but I'd still like to visit this park.


Neanderthal Park to Debut in France
May 25, 2005

Enduringly portrayed as muscle-bound, brainless and unfeeling,
Neanderthals may at last start to turn the tide of opinion if a new
venture has its way.

Combining tourism and archaeology, the "palaeosite" at the village of
Saint-Cesaire, 140 kilometres (85 miles) north of Bordeaux, in
southwestern France, aims to give visitors a breathtaking snapshot
of how these hominids lived 35,000 years ago.

"It's not a museum, nor an amusement park; it's a new concept which
has no equivalent anywhere in the world," said Didier Brennenmann,
an engineer who spent five years overseeing the construction of the 13-
million-euro ($16-million) complex.

Financed mostly by local authorities, the centre has been built at the site
of a dig where, in 1979, archaeologists uncovered the skeleton of a 20-
year-old Neanderthal woman they dubbed "Pierrette."

That sounds like it could be a wonderful experience.
It sounds like a really unique place where one could learn a lot.
