Welcome to the Neanderthals: 2.12.2016 – 31.8.2018

A fascinating ability to survive in severe environment of Pleistocene Europe / Our predecessors in a new light.

Long-time research of Middle Paleolithic in Europe shows unequivocally how the image of mentally limited Neanderthals struggling everyday for survival is false, meaning we have to change our beliefs essentially. Luckily, we can do so at museum Anthropos Pavilion.

Through the most important finds originate mostly from the territory of Moravia, the exhibition shows the everyday life of Neanderthals and their fascinating ability to survive in severe conditions of the entire Pleistocene Europe.

The exhibition is based on models, reconstructions and audio-visual elements demonstrating in a dynamic and interactive way the behavior of the Neanderthals.
