The Aubechies-Beloeil Archeosite and Museum leads visitors on an exciting 5,000-year journey into history!

A genuine open-air museum, it realistically portrays the daily life of the successive inhabitants of our regions, through reconstructions based on numerous archaeological digs.

The Prehistoric age is illustrated by Neolithic dwellings (the first farmers and breeders) from the Bronze and Iron Ages.After stopping off at a Gallic house, you will discover the Gallo-Roman era, with a temple, necropolis, villa and barge (flat-bottomed boat).

The Léonce Demarez Interpretation Centre for Ancient Religions and Beliefs unveils the polytheistic religions practised in Northern Gaul until the dawn of Christianity.

The site comes to life on Sunday afternoons from mid-April to mid-October, with various craft demonstrations (bone carving, weaving, pottery, forging, bronze melting, Gallic cooking, etc.).

The last weekend of August is dedicated to experimental archaeology, with demonstrations of military manoeuvres, gladiator fights, etc.
