  • A great place for kids to learn how people lived years ago. It is good to know that the restaurant is selling some vegetarian burgers. An Incredible place! A lots things to see and learn. Many workers here to explain everything for the visitors. Very interesting activities during the weekend! Entrance ticket is expensive, but with the museum card is free! The workers here are very kind and patient, too. They have a large playground. Paid parking lot. Souvenir shop. Several snack shops and cafĂ©-restaurant. A visit will take you somewhere between 3-4 hours.
  • Super place that has an air of authenticity thanks to the passion of the individuals dedicating their time to this place. A true haven of nature & culture in South Holland, Archeon is a very nice place for the young and old alike. Just another reminder of why I love living in the Netherlands!
