Experimental archaeology
This museum revolves around experimental archaeology: the science that tests archaeological theories in practice by recreating and using things. Most of the buildings in the museum have been built this way. Regional archaeological finds teach us very much about how people used to live. If you want to know all about history and the museum and get an answer to all of your questions, participate in the guided tour. It starts at the medieval market square every day.
