Hihof Prehistoric Museum: the development of mankind

The Hihof Museum, housed in a medieval building, explains the development of mankind from the Paleolithic era to the first farmers. Artefacts from all over the world show how tools and weapons developed over a period of more than a million years. Chronological charts, maps and films bring the Stone Age to life. The most important exhibit is a copy of the skeleton of Loschbour man, known as “Loschi”. The 8000-year-old skeleton was found beside the Löschbur stream near Heffingen; “Loschi” is Luxembourg’s oldest resident!
