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.

Discover our history by grabbing, smelling and tasting it. This way you will get to know the past as it really was.
