Discover our exhibition

Immerse yourself in 4 million years of human history! In our family-friendly and multi-award-winning exhibition, you will find the answers to the key questions ‘Where do we come from?’, ‘Who are we?’ and ‘Where are we going?’. You will meet our most famous ancestors - and of course the Neanderthals.
