For European Heritage Days, Archéa – the Pays de France’s archeology museum in Louvres, Val d’Oise – expects you for tours and entertainments on Saturday September 17 and Sunday 18, 2022.

How about improving your archeology knowledge for European Heritage Days? On Saturday September 17 and Sunday 18, 2022, run to Archéa, musée d'Archéologie en Pays de France, set in Louvres in Val-d’Oise, to discover varied tours and entertainments for free. Open in September 2010, Archéa is more than a museum: it is a territory project started in the 80’s in order to keep, study and promote the archeological heritage of Pays de France, the name of the natural region north of Paris, by the Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport.

A museum welcoming you in a contemporary building and inviting you to discover its temporary and permanent collections focusing on the region’s archeologic remnants, from the Prehistory to the 18th century. Videos, models, touch-in courses and more vestiges and archeologic items are displayed for you to better understand the rich story of this geographic era and enlighten the history of France.

A museum that steps in after the Saint-Rieul Tower that was then the city’s archeologic museum. It used to gather objects and vestiges unearthed during diggings carried out between 1976 and 1987 by the group of historic and archeologic researches of Louvres-en-Parisis (GRHALP). Diggings were conducted in the city-center of Louvres and enabled to shine a light on bronze pools, glassware, golden fibulas and more bracelets, all witnesses of the presence of a large Merovingian necropolis between 500 and 515 AD.

And if you want to complete your archeologic knowledge about the region for European Heritage Days, you can also go there (program currently updated):
