The settings

The  Préhistomuseum and its cave are sited in a Natura 2000 reserve on the banks of the River Meuse in Liège, in the Walloon region.  

The Préhistomuseum, formerly the Ramioul Préhistosite, is an educational tourism centre focusing on Prehistoric times, located on the doorstep of the Belgian Ardenne.  

The nearest town is Liège-Flémalle. The cave and the many activities scattered across the 30-hectare site will delight children, adults and nature-lovers alike. 

 

Le parc

The Prehistory adventure park is the experiential extension of the Museum. 

It is home to and responsible for the conservation of the Ramioul Cave, a listed site, and to all the biodiversity of its 30 hectares of Natura 2000 forest. 

The Préhistomuseum, its Prehistory adventure park and its museum, are staffed by archaeologist mediators who use encounter, experience and demonstration to create pleasure, emotion and a sense of wonder in visitors, as a way of stimulating their curiosity and their desire to learn more about and protect our heritage. 


The park offers a range of outdoor activities exploring 9 themes:

- human evolution: green maze

- hunting: spear thrower or archery course featuring 3D targets 

- domestication: plants and animals on the educational farm

- habitat: reconstitutions of teepees, a palisade and a Prehistoric house 

- everyday life: workshops on pottery, flint knapping, making fire, etc. 

- the archaeological site: explore the Ramioul Cave in darkness

- landscape: a walk through the listed cave site

- the future: contemplating the future of humanity on a barefoot pathway

- contemporary art: “The office of the Museum of the Ephemeral” by Werner Moron,


All these experiences are designed to be both entertaining and educational, to enable as many visitors as possible to learn while having fun.
