What to expect

Occupying a fabulous location directly opposite the Eiffel Tower on the Esplanade du Trocadéro, the Musée de l'Homme houses over 700,000 items, tracing the history of man. Three deep mysteries intertwine at the heart of this cultural project: who are we, What are out origins, and where are we going? At this wonderful interdisciplinary museum, you will discover answers from prehistorians, biologists, the world of culture, geneticists, ethnographers and anthropologists. There's no collection like it in the entire world.

Did you know?

The Musée de l'Homme displays the skull of the first Cro Magnon man discovered in 1968 as well as that of the 17th-century mathematician and philosopher René Descartes. The latter is certainly the centerpiece of the museum's collection. After his death, part of his skeleton was stolen before being found centuries later in a private collection and then donated to the museum. A controversy erupted at the end of the 19th century because René Descartes' skull is relatively modest in size, and some doubted the reality of the identification. Nevertheless, the skull was authenticated by a number of inscriptions, notably a small phrase in Latin stating: "Here is the very small skull of a very great man."
