  • Archeon has several times from the past. Among other things the Romans, the stone age and the middle ages. In all these periods they have Archeo-interpreters, people who wear clothes from the period in question and you can show and tell how the people lived in that time. Also the gladiatorial combat you don't want to miss out. Especially for children between 6 and 12 is this museum a "must-see". After one time they want to be back for sure! Also for adults there is plenty to see and do. Enjoy archery or bake your own bread. Take the whole day for your visit. There is so much to do!

  • This is a nice archeological museum with quite a number of actors walking around. You walk through different eras, beginning in prehistoric to the bronze age, iron age, Roman age and middle ages. The actors give information about their era and give an interactive insight in how they lived, which tools they used and what life looked like for them. Really fun to visit if you are interested in (local) history.
  • Great place to understand Dutch history as a Roman frontier and all other centuries till 1600. Free parking, decent prices and knowledgeable guides.
  • Nice place to take pictures. No new developments for years unfortunately. It seems a bit stagnant.
  • It is a museum but it is more a children's play park then a museum. Interesting things to see. They also have a gladiator show.
  • You must've been here as a kid at least once!
