In the Neander Valley (Neandertal), where the Neanderthals were discovered more than 150 years ago, now stands one of the most modern museums in Europe. The museum presents the history of humanity from its origins in the African savannah more than four million years ago to the present day. Regularly changing special exhibitions address various themes. Children, adolescents and adults are invited to take part in activities in the Stone Age workshop and there is a large museum festival once a year. From the museum there is a path to the world-famous site where the Neanderthals were discovered. Along the path, information stations with audio guides provide an overview of the natural, cultural and industrial history of the valley.
