Very exiting guided tour under the surface of the historic Dom square in Utrecht. Back to the time of the Romans you can see how this place was built up and destroyed by army's or tornados.

This is a great experience with interesting history and story about how Domunder came about. It is a great indoor museum especially when it rains. Nice interacting guide too.

Cool setting with a very interesting historical background. Long lecture by the guide and three films. What you can see is quite small and somewhat disappointing.

Browse through the pages of Utrecht’s history through this partially guided tour which combines exhibits, videos, guided explanations and an interactive ‘archeological expedition’ to fully appreciate the history of Utrecht. Recommend buying tickets online a week before.

Partially guided tour (1.5 hrs) near Dom church. A very interesting, interactive tour with professional guides. Really nice visit if you’re in the center of Utrecht. Recommend booking one week in advance.
