Gear up for the Summer of the Neanderthal!
Did you know that some of us inherited as much as 4% of our DNA from Neanderthals? That’s just one of the many astonishing discoveries you’ll make when you visit our newest major exhibition, Neanderthal. Opening weekend is especially exciting, with a lively trivia game and a table where you can handle stone tools. This is also your chance to enjoy a lecture by Neanderthal experts Marylène Patou-Mathis and Pascal Depaepe, and to take a tour of the exhibition with curator Janet Young (in English), or Marylène Patou-Mathis (in French). The Neanderthals will be here all summer, but there’s only one opening weekend!
Curatorial tours: 11 to 11:30 a.m. (French); 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. (English)
Public lecture: 12 p.m. (in French, with simultaneous translation in English)
