THE RECEPTION OF SCHOOL GROUPS AND GROUPS OF YOUNG PEOPLE IS ONE OF OUR KEY MISSIONS; COSQUER MÉDITERRANÉE WILL BE A PRIME VENUE FOR SCHOOL GROUPS, ENABLING STUDENTS TO DISCOVER, FURTHER THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF, OR LEARN ABOUT PREHISTORY, AND ALSO A PLACE TO LEARN ABOUT THE PHENOMENON OF RISING SEA LEVELS.
The school groups are welcomed by a receptionist and a cultural mediator. The tour begins with the replica of a 1980s diving club.
They then immediately board the nautical elevator that takes them deep beneath the ‘sea’ for a 35-minute exploration of the cave on board exploratory vehicles with a seating capacity of 6; the school groups are semi-autonomous during the tour.
You will discover all the cave’s treasures and you will be able to see the parietal works close up. After the exploration of the cave, a film screening in the Jean Courtin amphitheatre will enable you to relive the cave’s discovery and the dangers of Henri Cosquer’s exceptional diving expedition.
WHETHER YOU ARE WITH YOUR FAMILY, ON A STOPOVER IN MARSEILLE, OR QUITE SIMPLY VISITING PROVENCE, EMBARK ON A DISCOVERY OF MORE THAN 500 PARIETAL WORKS IN THE HEART OF THE COSQUER CAVE. DIVE INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE VILLA MÉDITERRANÉE AND EMBARK ON BOARD OUR EXPLORATORY VEHICLES FOR AN IMMEDIATE DEPARTURE!
The floating walkway will give you access to the building and the replica of the diving club.
You will then immediately board the nautical elevator that will take you deep beneath the ‘sea’ for a 35-minute exploration of the cave on board exploratory vehicles with a seating capacity of 6, at a rate of 24 people every 3 minutes.
