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.

The place itself is average but the tour guide was excellent and very passionate about the place. He provided a lot of information about the city and its history.

This is historical sight meeting the modern technical at its best. You get to see 2000 year of historical remains.

A 2000 year history of Utrecht with a guided walk around an excavated site sounds great but unfortunately the utter lack of enthusiasm and patronising lecture: 'has anyone heard of the Romans?' really let this down. I'd recommend it - but fingers crossed you don't...More
