At the Trocadéro, the Musée de l'Homme invites you to discover the evolution of Man (with a capital "H"), from the first humans to the men of today, on an interactive and educational tour.

Organized around three main themes - Who are we? where do we come from? and Where are we going?- the museum explores the origins of Man, taking in our evolution fromNeanderthal man toHomo Sapiens, before closing the tour of the permanent collections with an open-ended reflection on the future of Man. The Galerie de l'Homme takes you back in time, where you'll come across reproductions of skeletons, traditional costumes and mannequins.

Among the permanent collections, the Musée de l'Homme boasts many treasures, some of which can be found in the Salle des Trésors, where you'll find the famous Venus de Lespugue and, not far away, the skeletons of original Neanderthal men and women.

As a family, you can explore the museum's permanent collections with the free children's game booklets (there are two, one for children aged 4 to 6 and one for older children aged 7 to 11), designed as a treasure hunt in the heart of the museum. Creative workshops, family tours and other activities for children are also offered during the vacations, at weekends and on certain Wednesdays.
