From the moment visitors arrive in the entrance hall the theme of the emergence of cultural man between 3.5 and 1.8 million years is brought to life through an “anthropological frieze” and four meaningful sets entitled “African History”: Lucy, the Laetoli footprints, the first tools, and Nariokotome Boy. Walking down a hallway carved out of the cliff rock, the visitor is then confronted with the question of the origins of man and the great stages of hominisation, starting from the first Australopithecines all the way to the African cradle.
