Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology
of Prehistoric Anthropology was founded by Prince Albert I in 1902 “to conserve traces of early humankind exhumed in the Principality
and neighbouring regions.”
The numerous collections which have been brought
together in the Museum over more than a century represent the various phases of
regional prehistory and protohistory. The majority of the archaeological and
palaeontological exhibits come from the Principality and neighbouring areas
(France and Italy).
