Owner description: People of all ages can learn 15,000 years of history in and around Eindhoven in the preHistorisch Dorp (Prehistoric Village) in Eindhoven. Go back to bygone times and discover how the first farmers went about their work, what the Romans did while they were here or how you would go hunting in prehistoric times. Get into conversation with a war-like Batavian at one of the monthly changing workshops , or make fire, a Roman coat of arms or an amulet. “Fantastic, you experience history in the making. Great not only for the kids but also worthwhile for adults!” , commented Maaike, an enthusiastic previous visitor. In addition to families with children, many expats also visit the Prehistoric Village. It’s probably the only museum in the Netherlands where you’re allowed to get dirty. Is there any better way to learn about the history of Eindhoven, Brabant and the Netherlands…!? Experience six periods of history from pre-history to the late middle ages at this open air museum!

We had previously been to the Open Air Museum in Arnhem and enjoyed it, but the website for this one intrigued us as it covered different time periods. The directions were not bad, but watch out for the parking area as it outside a local diving school test track and the exit is a bit tricky. However, once we we found the entrance, the pricing was very reasonable. There was information available in English and we were told that the staff, who were in costume, would speak English as a matter of course. Those staff were very well informed and polite and our kids had a great time cutting wood in the Iron Age village as well as collecting local, well marked plants, to make an infusion that would have been drunk at that time. The young lady in the workhouse, was very eloquent and spoke better English than I do as we quizzed her about the candle making our children were doing. The viking long hut was an eye opener too with costumes for the boys to try on and swords to swing ... under supervision of course. All in all an excellent three hours. Thoroughly recommended.
