Neanderthal Museum

The bones of the famous 60 000-year old skeleton of Neanderthal man were found in a cave, today destroyed, hidden in a steep valley. A plaque on a triangular rock indicates where they were discovered. The Neandertal Museum is devoted to the evolution of humanity and relates the life of prehistoric man. Modern techniques have enabled the museum staff to faithfully reproduce what our ancestors looked like.
