Since its founding, the museum has been involved in in-depth scientific research work on its collections sourced from more than 1,400 sites in the Ardèche and the north of the Gard, featuring more than a million exhibits! In conjunction with the Regional Archaeology Service, Les Amis de la Cité de la Préhistoire, and with support from the village of Orgnac-l’Aven and the Department of the Ardèche, the Cité de la Préhistoire hosts many researchers every year.
