Containing a series of priceless burial places originating from localities in the Principality’s vicinity, notably Grimaldi, in Italian Liguria, this museum was founded in 1902 by Prince Albert I.

Its exhibits retrace the most important stages in the history of the human race, from the Australanthropus and Homo Sapiens, including Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon and Grimaldi remains.
In addition, there are vestiges of animals which are now extinct or which migrated in the course of glaciary and interglaciary periods, as well as reminders of successive civilizations: the Paleolithic (nearly a million year ago), the Neolithic, and the Bronze Age (5000 to 500 BC).
