Within the spectacular magnesian limestone gorge of Creswell Crags lie a large number of caves, fissures and rock shelters, many of which harboured secrets from our Prehistoric past. Archaeologists have been excavating these caves since the 19th Century, when the Victorians first discovered the artefacts that lay beneath the cave floors.

Along with exhibitions in the museum, there are two cave tours you can check out at Creswell, to see Britain's only Ice Age rock art and to discover more about how prehistoric man lived at Creswell during the Ice Age.

From February to October, visitors can book into the Rock Art and Ice Age Cave tours every day. In November, December and January, the tours take place at weekends and bank holidays.
