On September 16-17, 2017, the Musée de l’Homme takes part in European Heritage Days 2017 and welcomes the public for free to reveal more secrets about our ancestors and the world through visits, animations and meetings with researchers.

On European Heritage Days 2017, the Musée de l’Homme offers us a free weekend about prejudice. In addition to visiting the museum for free, European Heritage Days are the occasion to know more about mankind through three questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? Thanks to the 2,500 sqm Galerie de l’Homme and dozens of scientists, answers will be given.

European Heritage Days 2017 at the Musée de l’Homme – Program:

  • Dance show “On t’appelle Vénus”, Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m.
    Thanks to a choreography suited to children under 10, choreographer Chantal Loïal uses the Hottentot Venus to interrogate about discrimination. As a memo, the Hottentot Venus was an African woman sold to a human zoo for a figure and who became a circus freak.

  • Meeting with Marie Desplechin, Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
    Writer of Ta Race! Moi et les autres (Your race, Us and Them) will be present to talk with children.

  • Meeting with Nicolas Bianco-Levrin, Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
    From the desert to Europe, discover the road used by migrants through a short film Ailleurs (2008) and exchange with Nicolas Bianco-Levrin.

  • Meeting with Sylvie Bahuchet, Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
    Meet Sylvie Bahuchet who wrote La Révolte des couleurs, un livre métaphorique sur la Seconde Guerre Mondiale et la Shoah (The color Revolution, a metaphorical book about the Second World War and the Holocaust). From the age of 7.

  • Discovering of the library, non-stop
    The research library opens its doors to the general public and reveals a part of its funds dedicated to biological anthropology and ethnobiology.

  • Discovering the Lascaux Cave, at 11:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
    Come in the Musée de l’Homme’s library and rediscover the story of how the Lascaux Cave has been discovered by a group of children in September 1940.

As a memo, the Musée de l’Homme is very valued among the public and you may have to wait for a very long time.
