Overview

Why not visit Bologna's Anthropological Museum in order to take a trip back in time and discover some of the important points in the evolutionary process which have led man to where he is today? This museum was opened in 1908 by the anthropologist F. Frassetto. The museum exhibits portray the various phases of evolution of primates and man, from prehistoric times to the Neolithic period. The exhibits include fossils and a large osteological collection made up of hundreds of skeletons. Part of the museum focuses on local paleontology, anthropological research tools dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century, and racial differences. The Masks in the Cipriani collection are definitely worth seeing. The masks are facial molds which were made between 1927 and 1930 during various trips to Africa. Admission: Free.
