As part of our partnership with Orange, the Musée de l’homme gives children an opportunity to explore the Galerie de l’Homme with or without their parents, thanks to a fun, innovative educational game: “Allen investigates at the Musée de l’Homme.” Available on smartphones and tablets.
UNE AVENTURE LUDIQUE ET INTERACTIVE POUR LES 8-12 ANS

The app offers children aged 8 to 12 the chance to visit the Galerie de l’Homme through a series of interactive games The investigation takes about an hour and, like the gallery itself, is divided into three sections: Who are we?; Where do we come from?; and Where are we headed? Youngsters will have fun while assimilating the main notions covered at the museum.
The children catch a strange signal on a smartphone or tablet. Now they must help Allen, a good-natured extraterrestrial, unravel the mysteries surrounding humans as part of his mission to planet Earth, as they assist him in his fascinating research on our species, its origins, cultures, and relationship with the environment. Among other games, the children will compare their Homo sapien’s skull with the real skull of a Neanderthal, make fire using the techniques of prehistoric humans, and play spot the difference.
For quick download and ease of use, free Wi-Fi is available at the Musée de l’Homme (look for MDH-Musee).
