Monaco’s Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology to celebrate European Archaeology Days

The Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology of Monaco will be holding a series of workshops and a special guided tour later this week in line with the continent-wide European Archaeology Days initiative. 

Founded by Prince Albert I in 1902, the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology in the Jardin Exotique neighbourhood of Monaco has been tasked with preserving the traces of primitive human activity discovered in Monaco and the surrounding areas and presenting these treasured artefacts to the public. The museum also regularly hosts guest exhibitions, such as the ongoing Lascaux à Monaco, which delves into the history of this globally renowned cave system in the Dordogne.

Between Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June, the museum will be celebrating the European Archaeology Days event along with more than 30 other European nations, including France, which will be holding a staggering 670 events this coming weekend.  

In Monaco, the action will be centred on a number of guided tours and workshops. 

From 5pm to 6pm on the Friday, visitors of all ages will be invited on a VIP tour of the museum and specifically its Suzanne Simone Research Laboratory. 

The following day will feature two special workshops for the younger generation. From 2pm to 3.30pm, children aged five to seven can participate in an interactive workshop. This will be followed by a session for children aged seven and above from 3.30pm to 5pm.  

Admission to both days is free of charge, but reservations are required as spaces are limited. To reserve, call +377 98 98 80 06 or email
