Le Musée de l’Homme takes you back 380,000 years in time, transporting you face to face with the Neanderthals, mankind’s ancestor that still holds many secrets. This family exhibition offers a variety of different experiences that blend serious scientific rigor with fun displays and workshops. Split into three sections, the exhibition gives an insight into the daily life of the Neanderthals and how long they lived.
