出張の合間の休日に行ってきました。街中の散策もいいけど、時には森の散策に。博物館は、小学生に戻って楽しめました。森の散策お勧めします。I went on holiday during the trip. Stroll through the city's good, but sometimes to walk through the forest. Enjoyed the Museum back to the elementary school. We recommend exploring the forest.show original

We were with friends and children from Switzerland to visit, all were enthusiastic.show original
A museum about the human evolution. It is located in the village where the first Neanderthal man was located. It is not a very big museum, but when one takes time to visit and read each and every exhibit one may require around 3 hrs. It also provides audio guide in English as well as in German. Quite nice place to visit!!!
jun-2015: It could be shown with some more spectacle. Suggestion: small bioscope, animal hunting animation...
Really something you should not skip to visit
А great experience. Timetravel 15000 years back in history. Don't forget to check and the other attractions nearby. For the first time my kid wasn't bored in Museum.
The museum was very educational, however, I would have liked to see more original artifacts. Almost everything they had (and it wasn't much) was a replica.
