Museumsgebäude Neandertaler Die Himmelsscheibe von Nebra Waldelefant


Its general renovation now completed, Germany's oldest museum structure for prehistoric archeology has now reopened with its new permanent exhibition. The display covers the Paleolithic and Mesolithic periods (hunters and collectors), the Neolithic period (the rise of farming) and the Early Bronze Age (use and spread of metalworking). The impressive arrangement of spectacular finds and reconstructions invites visitors on a journey through time, a journey that begins 450,000 BC and ends around 3500 BC. Visitors are introduced to the oldest known settlement of Germany, to a giant forest elephant and to a Neanderthal man lost in thought. Furthermore, the first attempts to control and manipulate nature can be witnessed and the world-famous Nebra sky disc can viewed.
