Travel through time and experience the fascinating history of The Netherlands at Archeon.

The park houses 43 buildings that are reconstructions of archeological finds or based on architectural research. In Archeon, the houses, farms and huts are home to Archeo-interpreters. Dressed in clothing of the time, they interpret the different periods from the past to the present. Join one of the tours and listen to the fascinating narrative of Holland’s oldest history.

However, Archeon is more then just a great story. You can discover 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…

Next to the entrance building stands 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. And food and drinks our offered in the Roman restaurant or medieval monastery. Both buildings, and the Roman bathhouse, have toilet facilities.

At the end of your visit, you can enjoy browsing in the museum shop. You will find many great books and souvenirs, among them unusual replicas made by Archeon’s own craftsmen.
