Just over 20 years ago, a 35,000 year old time capsule was discovered.
The Chauvet caves, in southern France, were found to contain some of the oldest man-made images ever produced, by our prehistoric ancestors.
Opening it up to visitors was never an option, so a full scale replica cave system has been recreated as a visitor centre, containing faithful, hand-painted in-situ copies of the original cave paintings.
I was wondering, if visiting - and viewing - fake copies, as a sole exhibition, would be as satisfying as seeing the real thing - but enough people visit Madame Tussaud's and similar places, every day; so, probably. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-32403867
