Very interactive and interesting park for visiting with children. You can touch and move to different history periods, participate in workshops on making jewelry, cooking bread etc. There are some cafes where you can have lunch and have a drink.

Visiting the Archeon is worth the trip. We visited it on a sunny day. Parking isn't free and I advise to look online for discounted tickets. It is worth the search. The park has 3 sections. Prehistoric, medieval and Roman times. The different sections are...More
