preHistorisch Dorp (Boutenslaan 161B, Eindhoven)

Plays and crafts during the autumn holidays in the preHistorisch Dorp

This autumn break, from October 10 to 25, the open-air museum in Eindhoven will organize the medieval toy & play weeks. In 1560, the painter Bruegel made a beautiful print portraying many children's games that youth played during medieval times. Think of knucklebones, pasterns, hoops, and much more. Most of us have never heard of these folk games, while children in the Middle Ages enjoyed playing them every day!


Children and adults can play these games from the painting during the autumn holiday. There are fun crafts you can make, games you can play with the historical residents who work at the preHistorisch Dorp or with your friends and family. Romp around with others or just tinker with the villagers inside. You can of course take the toys that you make home with you, so you can continue to play fun medieval games at home.


The open-air museum preHistorisch Dorp is one of the most unique attractions in Eindhoven. It consists of a replica of prehistoric and medieval barns and houses, and has historical residents who are dressed in period costumes who offer demonstrations of skills used by people from the prehistoric and medieval eras.


The preHistorisch Dorp currently has a maximum number of visitors permitted per day. It is therefore necessary to book your ticket to the museum in advance online via


Entrance is € 9,95. Children up to three years old are free of charge.
