Travel through time

See you in March!

The preHistorisch Dorp is currently closed due to the winter break. The museum will open again on March 26. We hope to see you in our new season!

Experience history up close

The preHistorisch Dorp in Eindhoven is the replica of a prehistoric and medieval village, complete with dwellings and demonstrations of skills used by historic people. The open-air museum recreates life from this and later eras. Experience history by discovering the museum by yourself. On your way, you’ll meet hunters from the Stone Age, farmers from prehistoric times, and craftsmen from the Middle Ages. Stop for a chat and be amazed by their stories about daily life in the past.

What you will discover:

Do you feel like a hunter? Then learn to throw javelin or make a fire. Are you more of a strong prehistoric woman? Learn to weave tape or paddle in a trunk canoe. The Vikings among us learn to shoot with bows and arrows, or discover how they forge a sword. And adventurers will search for the secret path or listen to exciting stories around the fire. In whose skin do you feel most comfortable? Discover it at the preHistorisch Dorp!
