Prehistorisch Dorp - Review
Eindhoven has been around for a long time and despite this, much of its ancient history is not lost at all. The PreHistorisch Dorp is a museum dedicated to the rural history of Eindhoven, by replicating the villages that make up the city. It covers six periods of history in the expanse of the open-air setup. There are several cottages that make up the villages. Keeping aside the visitors, the people in the museum try to keep life as primitive as possible. You will see examples like cooking on open fires and archery when visiting. Plenty of schools bring their students for an educational trip here. Visitors can participate in the daily activities of the residents of various time periods. Apart from the living history, there are frequent workshops held here for an all-round experience of visiting a historic village. Do not forget to skip this experience when in Eindhoven.

Prehistorisch Dorp, Eindhoven Reviews
the animatronic goats were my highlight. very on point. almost looking real. best part of the whole village. rest was dope too.
It's been around for a long long time, but always used to be just a seemingly abandoned prehistoric house. Nowadays it's a museum with a very dense use of space. Which is nice. The museum is full of volunteers, people that like to dress and act like they are living in these times. They are very fond to tell you about the old ways. The museum is great for kids as they can safely walk around on their own and experience many things that are both fun and educational.
Interactive museum with actors that explain what they do according to the time they represent. Food and environment show how life was back in the day. Nice experience for young and not that young!
Small but nice park with reconstructed historic houses. Actors add to the atmosphere and explain the history.
Great place to go with children. On a very green location, quite near the centre of Eindhoven. It's located in the Genneper parken, near Genneper Hoeve (also worth a visit).
