Neanderthal Museum

Treasures and Museums

The famous Neanderthal Museum is situated a short distance from the place where Neanderthal man was first discovered more than 160 years ago. The visitors take a trip through the history of mankind – from our beginnings in Africa more than a million years ago to the present day. The lifelike reconstructions of our ancestors, such as the Neanderthal man “Mr. N”, the Australopithecus woman “Lucy” or the Neanderthal girl “Kina”, are especially popular. Varied presentations, hands-on exhibition stations, researcher boxes for rummaging through and the unique stone age playground for visitors both young and old ensure that a visit to the museum is a varied experience.
