Ever since its opening on February 27, 2010, the Krapina Neanderthal Museum has been attracting the attention of visitors, not only due to the intriguing notion of NEANDERTHALS in its name but surely also due to its specific ways of presenting the topic.

Authors of the project and its realization, paleontologist Jakov Radovčić, and architect Željko Kovačić, worked to bring us a better understanding of the people of Krapina from the Stone Age, who lived in this area 125,000 years ago.

The exhibition is set up as a time machine through the history of the Universe, the Earth, and Man, leading up to the present day, and lays special emphasis on the Neanderthal period.
