  • I first visited this place during a school trip when i was about 9 or 10 years old and i guess those memories are the reason i was disappointed. The setting is nice, numerous buildings with all kinds of crafts and some staff in those houses crafting stuff or entertaining children. What i missed was the acting skills and friendliness of the staff. I remembered staff being in role, acting like they did not know anything of this time and being enthousiastic about telling what their role is. The gladiator fight was very good, so I can recommend it. Overall its a fun experience, but don't expect too much of the staff.
  • Great place, especially all the enthusiastic hosts with their stories and knowledge. And the gladiator show. Loved it!
  • Just perfect. My son is impressed. A lot of interesting activities
  • Lovely museum park. You won't get bored here.
  • That's a perfect place for kids who speak Dutch. However, this place is less exciting for the grown-ups. Also, it's quite expensive for the services that you get.
