Anthropological Collection


Are you curious to know more about human evolution and behaviour? The Anthropological Collection houses a rich collection divided into three sections: paleoanthropology and prehistory, anthropometric instruments of historical and scientific interest, face casts, plaster busts and coloured tables, and finally skeleton biology and bioarcheology. Come and visit us: you will see an original yurt from Kazakhstan, the traditional tent used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.
