Bones and Stones, Footprints and Fossils!

What do bones, footprints and stone tools tell us about human life and behaviors?

We’ll journey back 4 million years to discover our ancient human ancestors in the Ancestors exhibition, examine cave art drawings and make our own drawings and clay animals. Evolutionary anthropologists will roll out the Discovery Cart, identify skulls and bones and answer all your questions about early human history. Celebrate our evolutionary past!
