With nearly 1,000 m2 of exhibition space split into a dozen rooms, the Musée archéologique du Val d’Oise boasts nearly 35,000 artefacts from local archaeological excavations.

The museum’s permanent collection is made up of a selection of 3,000 objects, presented in chronological order and allowing visitors to discover the history of the department, from its geology (when the Val d’Oise was under water 45 million years ago) right up to the more recent history of human beings (Prehistory, Antiquity, High Middle Ages).

The exhibition offers three different routes aimed at children aged 3-6, 7-10 and 11-15. To round off your visit, discover a fun educational space with interactive exhibits where visitors can copy the actions of archaeologists in the field, restorers in the laboratory, and the curator of the museum.

Perfect for a family outing!
