In the former palace theatre at Schloss Charlottenburg, the Museum of Pre- and Early History sheds light on the cultural evolution of Europe and parts of Asia from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages. Pride of place goes to the Trojan antiquities (some originals, some replicas) unearthed by Heinrich Schliemann in 1870. Upstairs in gallery 3, the focus is on Europe with a preserved Neanderthal skull being a highlight. Also keep an eye out for the Berliner Goldhut, a famous Bronze Age conical hat made of a thin layer of gold, in gallery 4. The museum is to set move to the Neues Museum on Museumsinsel, possibly as early as 2009.
