Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology of Monaco

Le Musée d’Anthropologie préhistorique a été fondé par le Prince Albert Ier en 1902 « afin de conserver les vestiges d’humanités primitives exhumés du sol de la Principauté et des régions avoisinantes ».
It was established in its new premises (Exotic Garden) by Prince Rainier III in 1959.

The collections retrace, throughout the era of the glacial and interglacial periods, the major stages in the evolution of the human race. They show that the Côte d’Azur was also a great place to live for our ancestors, even one million years ago.

The Museum is a research institute, carrying out excavation work and laboratory studies. The Museum also publishes a bulletin.
We speak : Italian, English, French
