Neanderthal: the exhibit - Travelling exhibition

Long considered to be primitive beings, today Neanderthals are recognized as full-fledged humans. Combining art and science, the exhibition deconstructs misconceptions about this species. It presents a large variety of casts of the original fossils in the museum’s collections and features recent debates in research.
