As the name suggests, the Neanderthal Museum features exhibits on the evolution of man. Built in 1996, the architect of museum was chosen through a competition where several countries presented their plans. The location of the museum is where the first fossil ever of the Neanderthal man was found; in a way, the museum is a monument to commemorate the first fossilized evidence of the Neanderthal.
The museum focuses on the Neanderthal man and how he moved to the cities from the savannas. With life size replicas, re-created cave drawings and other fossilized exhibits from the excavated sites. Spanning four floors, the museum does well to delve into the history and evolution of man starting from the skeleton of a Neanderthal moving on to the social norms and customs of the society in those times.
