THE MUSEUM OF Neanderthal man
The first station on our journey goes far into the begining of humanity. The Krapina Neanderthal Museum, located in the town of Krapina, attracts a lot of visitors. Not just because of the intriguing NEANDERTAL concept, but certainly because of the specific way of presenting the theme. The authors of the project and the realization of the museum tried to get closer to the inhabitants of the Krapina Stone Age who lived 125 years ago. The setting was made as we are in a time machine traveling through the history of the Universe, the Earth, the man to this day, with a special emphasis on Neanderthals.
