With numerous hiking trails, a museum bistro with a panoramic terrace, a barbecue area and workshop rooms for small and large groups, MONREPOS is an internationally unique Archaeological Research Centre for Human Behavioural Evolution. We explore the Old and Middle Stone Age origins of our present day behaviour in cooperation with experts from all over the world. For this purpose, we place archaeological finds into a context of development history - and communicate our findings in a vivid and memorable way.

Guided Tours

Why did we humans settle down? Why do some of us have hay fever and not the others? And what diet has allowed humanity to become over 3 million years old? Answers to these and many more questions about us and our long history of becomIng HUMAN are provided by our interactive guided tours through the permanent exhibition "understandIng HUMANity".


From freshly made breakfast to newly baked cakes and personally prepared cocktails - enjoy aromatic inspired delights in our café-restaurant »MonAppétit«.


Schloss Monrepos is accessible for wheelchairs. Disability-friendly toilets are also available both in the exhibition and the museum education area. The panoramic terrace and our café-restaurant MonAppétit are also wheelchair accessible.
