Set in a contemporary building, ARCHÉA offers visitors the chance to explore the north-east of the Paris Region through the results of 40 years of archaeological research. Around 780 artefacts, from prehistory to the modern era, discovered at 90 archaeological sites are presented in a lively and interactive permanent exhibition.
Video screens, digital projections, reconstructions, models and touchable exhibits will help you discover the collections and the work of the archaeologists and better understand the region’s history. And for the youngest visitors, fun activities (workshops, shows, etc.) based on the permanent and temporary exhibitions are offered all year round.
ARCHÉA also includes the archaeological site of the Château d’Orville and the ceramic heritage of the Ysieux valley, which will help you understand archaeologists’ day-to-day work.
At the moment, Archéa is taking you on the tracks of the missing mammoths..
