  • In this place you walk by a small village of medieval times. Where the people of the village made their daily tasks. There is a small Museum of objects found in the place when there was a Roman settlement. Also performed a show in "the arena" in fight... It is for all ages. Really enjoyable!

  • Nice place to teach your kids (and yourself) something about history in The Netherlands, before the Golden Age (stone age, roman era and middle ages). Especially the fact that it's entertaining and interactive makes it a place you will remember. Make sure you purchase the Activity Card to participate in making a bracelet, bake bread or do some archery.
  • Lots of activities for children (making candles, archery, gladiators, swordplay, baking bread... The actors are nice and give a lot of information. Best on a sunny day, because it is an open air museum.
  • Great outing for kids with lots of interesting exhibits related to history. Can take up a nearly a whole day here. Excellent actors with lots of great craft activities for kids. Would especially recommend the knights jousting, was amazing to experience. Only negative was one actor was quite rude to our small daughter.
  • Ideal for kids. Lots of fun activities, the gladiator show might be a bit scary for kids up to 7 years old
  • Always great fun for the family, especially on the days they organize something extra. Lovely friendly actors and well maintained.
