Museum’s General information
Next to the current entrance of Petralona Cave, about 50 m to the south, is constructed, at the expenses of the Anthropological Association of Greece the Anthropological Museum, which houses the finds of the excavations. These findings come mainly from the Cave, but also from open sites such as Chalkidiki, Amyntaio, Ikaria, Crete, Ptolemais, Chios etc.
The Museum is a traditional two-storey building ~ 1000 square meters, constructed with tiled roof, while on the northern stonewall the map of the Cave with the tourist path is designed by Panos Polydoropoulos.
On the ground floor are stores of findings, preservation and registration labs, as well as in a separate Hall the library of the Museum is hosted.
The upper floor, besides the Exhibition Hall, has a spacious decorated Atrium, the Lecture Hall (above the library) and the Office of the Directorate.
The Atrium is at the middle of the 2nd floor spaces and has two statues of Archanthropuses, one of a hawk-eagle (of the Buthierax pouliani species- according to Miklos Kretzoi), five large murals, a bench with book reviews of the visitors and a showcase with the editions of the A.A.G. and the Antropological Museum. From the murals, the largest painting on display depicts the evolution of life according to Aristotle, another the Hominid’s evolution according to Aris Poulianos, while others depict the interior of the Cave. The statues, mostly in natural size, are made by the sculptress Angela Korovessi-Kalantidi, while the murals by the popular painter Christos Kagkaras and his son Nikos. These artistic reproductions, like everything else in Petralona Cave, are created under the close supervision of Aris Poulianos to meet the necessary scientific standards.
The high-ceilings and frescoes of the Exhibition Hall are decorated with painted representations of the evolution of life, covering the last 4.5 billion years. Towards the end, the evolution of the human species and snapshots of the activities of Petralonian Archanthropinae.
