“YESTERDAY… Between the Mediterranean and the North Sea”. 500 centuries of local history in the heart of Europe: this is the theme of the permanent exhibition at the Laténium.

You are taken – step by step – through the different stages of human evolution, from the present day back to the times of the Neanderthal man. The exhibition consists of 8 different rooms, comprising a total area of 2200 m2. In reverse order, it spans a time frame from the Renaissance to the Palaeolithic Era.

Thanks to clear explanations, small-scale models, audiovisual media, games for children and many more features, each room settles you into a new atmosphere, where you may learn about the basics of archaeological work and the scientific interpretation of our own past.
