Prehistoric Museum Blaubeuren

Urgeschichtliches Museum BlaubeurenWhen man became an artist

The caves around Blaubeuren are amongst the most important archaeological sites in the world. Both Neanderthals and the early anatomically modern man lived on the edge of the Swabian Alb during the Paleolithic. Unique works of art dating back to the Ice Age have been found in the caves in the Swabian Alb: figures carved from mammoth ivory and flutes made from swan bones and mammoth ivory. The works of art and musical instruments are amongst the oldest artefacts to demonstrate evidence of humanity.

The Prehistoric Museum shows various aspects of life of both types of human forms, how tools have changed over the centuries and the development of the Stone Age civilization. The museum offers a variety of highly educational services for visitors, guaranteed to bring the Stone Age alive.
