Unique project in Europe, the new museum brings together collections of prehistory, biological and cultural anthropology, as well as a research, teaching, training and dissemination centre on the evolution of Man and societies.
A space for debate, an agora open to all, this privileged place makes it possible to address the major current issues in the human sciences. In its element, the visitor enjoys vast spheres of exchange and life: atrium, auditorium, resource center, news area, educational workshops.
The permanent exhibition, through a diversity of approaches, develops three major themes, from the origins of Man to his future: who are we, where are we from, where are we going? With the objective of understanding the human and the place it occupies in the living, to tell its origins and to question our margins of adaptation in the world of tomorrow.
The route is based on invaluable collections: fossils of Cro-Magnon men, the paleolithic statuette known as "Venus de Lespugue", anatomical waxes... The collections of the Musée de l'Homme are among the most important in the world in the fields of prehistory and anthropology...
