Loevestein has always played a military role and has therefore never been home to nobility. It was home to stewards, soldiers and regular citizens. Every day, we tread in their footsteps.

Our Unearthed! exhibition brings you face to face with their lives. Sometimes, their lives were quite astonishing, but at other times surprisingly normal. Together, they tell their stories about how life used to be… how they lived, how they worked, how they ate, how they drank.

Unearthed! is one of the few archaeological exhibitions in the Netherlands located where its exhibits were actually unearthed!
