Take part in a special tour of the "PREHISTOMANIA" exhibition

at the Musée de l'Homme


#ART Discover the Musée de l'Homme's new exhibition, which takes you to the heart of a human adventure to discover prehistoric art and follow the fabulous story of these extraordinary masterpieces!

To know

The Musée de l'Homme presents an exceptional temporary exhibition devoted to rock art. 

Following the discovery of the first prehistoric sites in the 19th century, scientists, artists and a whole section of the population became fascinated by these hidden, ornate sites, the traces of our distant ancestors: a veritable prehistomania developed in the 20th century.

Developed by artists in the field, these works were immediately exhibited in prestigious museums, giving the most ancient pictorial traces an opportunity to burst into the modern world.

With more than 200 documents and objects, including some 60 original surveys, the exhibition offers a worldwide panorama of these works, recounts the adventures of the expeditions, shows what inspiration the surveys became for twentieth-century artists, and documents current techniques for transposing and conserving rock paintings.

Can't make the tour? Don't worry, the exhibition is open until May 20, 2024! Visit the Musée de l'Homme website for more information.
