After six long years of works and refitting, the Musée de l’Homme reopens its doors to welcome visitors Sunday, October 17, 2015.
The Musée de l’Homme is a French national museum whose main focus is to present humanity in its anthropological, historical and cultural diversity. The museum is totally renovated on an architectural plan with a much larger space, and will propose a new concept, that of a laboratory museum where everything will be set so that visitors immerse in a unique atmosphere. The Balcony of Sciences will link the public and researchers working with advanced methods, allowing visitors to discover a new concept.
Crossing biological, social and cultural approaches, the new Musée de l’Homme offers a journey to the heart of human evolution, from its origins to the future of its species. Who are we, where do we come from, where are we going? Man is at the very heart of the 250 researches scientists are working on, using advanced techniques to study the bones, teeth and skulls.
In the words of Bruno David, the Chairman of the National Museum of Natural History, “The Musée de l’Homme is now ready to speak of Man as no one ever did”.
Starting from October, 17, 2015, you’ll be discovering a modular museum with “interactivity” as a main tool, using a mix of video, sound and animations. In short, the museum will be that of Man in the 21st century.
Get ready to discover the Musée de l’Homme as you’ve never seen before, and guess what, it’s for free from the 17th to the 19th of October, 2015.
Guests staying at Hotel Powers will be within a 6 minute drive from the Musée de l’Homme, do not miss the chance.
