At Eindhoven Museum you experience the history from the beginning to E(i)ndhoven. At the moment however the story starts about 30,000 years too late. The history in the heritage park starts at the Iron age (about 2500 years ago), while there is evidence that there were already people in the Kempen about 35,000 years ago. To relive the history as complete as possible, Eindhoven Museum is adding a new era to their grounds, the Stone age. They will expand the grounds of the museum with an encampment of hunters and collectors from the Mesolithic (approx. 5500 j. v. CHR.). They didn't just want to put some shacks there but they want you to feel like you are actually in the Stone age!
The people in this part of the museum are dressed according to the fashion of 6000 years ago, there are all kinds of tools made from bones, they still use flint and leather and there are activities which you can join. They could use a little help with building this and therefore they have started a crowdfunding project. There are several amounts you can donate and they have something nice for you in return.
