Thank you for visiting

In August of 2017, we launched this new exhibit featuring dozens of our fossil and living ancestors.

Many of the world's most famous hominid specimens are represented by cast skulls and skeletons.

We feature casts of a Neanderthal skeleton, Homo erectus / Homo ergaster,. Australopithecus africanus, Australopithecus afarensis (Lucy), and others. We include skeletons of a 5-year-old Home sapiens, dated at approximately 5,000 years old. A modern adult male chimpanzee skeleton makes for an excellent comparison when discussing bipedal vs quadrupedal locomotion. Fresh from the grave is the Kebara Neanderthal skeleton exactly as it was found in the ground. We also include a Neanderthal skeleton as famously reconstructed by Gary Sawyer from AMNH.

Also included: Laetoli Hominid tracks, tools, carvings, and at least 20 Hominid skulls! Visit us at

We've also included many extant ape and monkey specimens for comparison.

Archaic Modern Humans

H. sapiens Oase 2 Sagittal Cut Skull

35,000 years BP: Oase 1 (mandible) and Oase 2 (cranium) were both discovered in the Peştera cu Oase, Romania. The mandible (Oase 1) was found first, in 2002, by speleologists Milota, Bîlgăr and Sarcină. The cranium, which is from a different individual, was found by a team led by Trinkaus and Zilhão between 2003-2005.

This nearly complete 5-year-old child skeleton is dated approximately 6,000 years old. The skeleton was found in Morocco, where it was discovered along with tools and pottery. This archaic 5-year-old is noticeably smaller (about 5 inches shorter) than a modern 5-year-old Child Skeleton

The standing pose measures approx. 32 1/2" tall

Set of four artifacts that were found with the skeleton of a 5-year-old child in Morocco which was dated to be 6,000 years old. These cast replicas capture all the subtle angles and textures of these artifacts and are painted to match the beautiful colors of the originals.
