1 min read

East Africa’s biggest natural history and scientific research facility, Olduvai Gorge Museum, hosted its official opening 3 October.

Located at the excavation site of Olduvai Gorge and near Laetoli Footprints, the site is known to hold the earliest evidence of the existence of humans. The museum is aimed at promoting archaeological sites for tourists and researchers from across the globe and visitors will be able to view all the archaeological findings, artifacts as well as replicas from various sites in Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia and South Africa, among other places.

According to Paleoanthropologists, findings of fossilized bones and stone tools in the area, are believed to date back millions of years, leaving them to conclude that humans evolved in Africa.
