Regional Pre-Historic museum

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français] [italiano]


Menton museums are open everyday except Tuesdays and Bank Holidays.

Built in 1907 and unique on the French Riviera, the museum has gathered together objects found on the numerous archaeological sites in the region.

Here, representations of every-day Life of man from the beginning of time have been meticulously re-constructed, providing an oustanding pedagogical tool to all that visit. The museum also exhibits a casting
of the “l’Homme de Menton” (Menton Man), the original being in the “Musée de l’Homme” (Museum of Man) in Paris : the cadaver was found at the end of the last century in “la grotte de Cavillon” (cave in Cavillon) - in italian territory – and there is still much debate as to his origins ; through it is widely thought the he dates back to upper Palaeolithic times (âge de rennes, âge de l’ours).

The “Arts, popular traditions and local history section” have reconstructed a kitchen and a bedroom scene set at the end of the 19th century. Here, you can discover typical objects and activities of the period : lemon farming, olive picking and sea-fishing…

The museum also holds temporary exhibitions.
