Welcome to Archeon Museum Park

Archeon contains 43 reconstructions of buildings, farms and huts that once stood in the Netherlands and that have been reconstructed according to archaeological excavations. Our Archaeo-interpreters live in these houses and thus show life from prehistory, Roman times and the Middle Ages. In original clothing they tell beautiful stories from history. Discover and experience this journey through time!
