HOMESurrounded by nature and yet very close to the city center, the Historical OpenluchtMuseum Eindhoven (HOME) is located near the beautiful river Tongelreep. Here you get a taste of the way our ancestors used to live and work. The museum includes a prehistoric village called Eversham, set in the Iron Age (750-50 BC) and a medieval town (500 - 1600 AD) called Endehoven.

Experience the past and be welcomed in the medieval inn "Den Bonten Os" where you can enjoy a barbecue and entertainment in historical style.

Drinks are included. Transport to and from the museum will be arranged. (in Dutch)
