Age 3

Two skeletons were found next to each other in Drenthe, Netherlands. The skeletons were dated back to between 160 BC and 220 AD. One of the skeletons was thought to be a female and the other a male so scientists called them the Weerdinge couple or Mr. and Mrs. Veenstra. It was determined that both skeletons were men and the name was changed to Weerdinge Men.

Opened in 1927, the first site of the museum was in the attic above an all-girls school. It quickly outgrew the space and was moved to a site across the street from another museum in Mathenesserlaan. The museum was forced to move again in 1959, and 1987. In 1993, the museum was given a new pavilion. It finally finds its permanent home in the early 2000s, where it is today.
