The Musée de l’Homme presents the evolution of the Human and the societies, crossing the biological, social and cultural approches according to the thoughts of Paul Rivet : « Humanity is an indivisible whole, in space and in time ».
The ethnologue created this national museum for the Paris Exposition of 1937.
It has been located in the Palais de Chaillot since 1938 and reopened this morning after having closed for 6 years.
The museum turns around 3 questions : who are we ? Where do we come from ? Where are we headed ?
According to the Figaro there are 5 main things to see : the inside architecture, the 91 busts representing the human diversity, the buried treasure, a large world map mural than enable to listen to 30 different languages (out of the 7000 spoken by 7 billion humans) and the museum as a working-laboratory.
To celebrate its reopening the Musee de l’Homme is free for 3 days. You should enjoy it !
