Overview

During your visit in Archeon, you will get to know the living history of the Netherlands.
All 43 buildings in our park are reconstructions of archeological finds or based on architectural research. The houses, farms and huts in Archeon are home to Archeo-interpreters. Dressed in clothing of the time, they interpret the different periods from te past – look, here they are, in the present! They can answer all your questions about any period you wish. Join one of the tours and listen to the fascinating narrative of this country’s oldest history.

But Archeon is more then just a great story. We invite you to live it yourself! Canoeing, spear throwing, playing a medieval ball game, or making a brooch. Trying on the helmet of the town guard. Having your fortune told by the temple priestess. Enjoying a roman massage. Deciding over life and death during the spectacular duel of the gladiators. Join in, immerse yourself, live Archeon!

And there’s more still..

Next to the entrance building stand the magnificent reconstruction of the Gallic-Roman Villa of Rijswijk. It houses the Roman Museum, which Her Royal Higness Princess Máxima opened on 23 August 2011. In the centre of the park, you will find an inviting playground. If you want something delicious to eat or drink, we will give you a hearty welcome in our Roman restaurant or medieval monastery. Both buildings, and the Roman bathhouse, have toilet facilities. To round off your visit, you can enjoy browsing our store (in the entrance building). You’ll find many great books and souvenirs, among them unusual replicas made by Archeon’s own craftsmen. This is also the place for any general information you might want.

Have a good time trip!

You can combine this museum with a nice visit to Leiden.
