The Hunebed center in Borger on
the Drentse Hondsrug puts you on the trail to prehistory.
To the time when the first farmers settled in Drenthe. These farmers
built the impressive stone burial monuments, the remains of which can
still be admired in the landscape of Drenthe.
There are still 54 and the largest is right next to the center.
In our museum the story is told about these mysterious megalithic graves
and the people who built them. Questions such as: who built them and how
but also why are they built?
There are no clear answers to many questions yet, but we will lift a tip
of the veil.
In addition to the museum, the Ancient Time Park has been open since
2014. There you can experience how our ancestors lived in their farms.
You can also take a walk through 150,000 years of Drenthe's history.
You can get an idea of our fascinating history through all kinds of
replicas of buildings and prehistoric objects. For children there is
also the possibility to walk the barefoot path.
In the Knowledge Centre, opposite the museum, there is a permanent
exhibition about ice ages and prehistory of the Hondsrug Geopark. The
exhibition takes you on a journey 150,000 years ago until the Middle
It shows how mammoths, woolly rhinos, Neanderthals, hunebed builders,
iron age farmers and many others people and animals have lived in the
old Drenthe landscape.
