Overview
More
Right in the heart of the city, beneath Place Saint-Lambert, lies one of the largest urban archaeological sites in Europe. The Archéoforum is a major heritage site which gives a unique view of the history of the City and its Principality with a new itinerary full of mystery, surprises and things to be learnt. The project, designed for children and grown-ups alike, is the perfect starting place for visits to Liège. Children and grown-ups, the amateurs and the curious, at the Archéoforum there is a place for everyone to learn about the evolution of the Ardent City from its origins to the present day. Equipped with an interactive tablet (iPad) or with an experienced guide at your side, you will discover the traces left by the first inhabitants of the region during prehistory, the remains of an imposing Roman villa, the crypt built on the site of the assassination of Saint Lambert and the foundations of the various churches and cathedrals which symbolised the power of the Principality over almost 1,000 years. A brand-new scenography with a strong educational flavour showcases never-seen-before archaeological pieces and dynamic recreations. The site is excavated regularly and hosts original exhibitions focusing on the evolution of societies.

This museum is completely underground and shows some of the amazing history buried underneath the city streets. It's not too long and well-worth a visit.

Under the Place Saint Lambert you can find an interesting underground museum, retracing the history of what would become Liege starting from the build of a roman villa. The iPad explanations are clear and complete

This is quite a large archeological site in the center of Liège. There are wall remains from all eras starting with the Roman era, 1st century AD. Objects from even earlier times are on display.
