  • Probably the best children education park in the Netherlands when it comes to history. Great for parents too! Personal advice, be there a bit before lunch. Have it in the roman courtyard or at the munks abbey. And enjoy a funnest dat of an amazing history lesson
  • Nice museum, especially with kids. Information boards are slightly superficial. Art in buildings is not always realistic, for example we saw rather cheap dummies in the Roman bath house. The Archeon certainly gives a good general impression but lacks finesse.
