understandIng HUMANity

Welcome to your past! The history of early humans determines our behaviour to the present day. On a journey of discovery to yourself, »understandIng HUMANity« describes the most important stages of our behavioural development with moving imagery. Acting as independent tour guides, visitors trace the roots of their behaviour and come closer to their own identity. This is the point of archaeology. Of course those who want the details can also find »real archaeology«: significant finds, background information and methodology. First-hand and up to date – as a research museum we present comprehensible research and intelligible archaeology.


An illustrated exhibition guide in English is available at the museum reception.


All Too Human Moving Moments

At MONREPOS the internationally successful photographic artist Marie Sjøvold Marie Sjøvold (Norway) has transcribed the history of our behavioural development into powerful images. Throughout our exhibit they illustrate ageless and all too human moving moments.
