More than a hundred archaeological sites hidden underground or at the bottom of lakes have been brought to light in the last few years around the Alps and these have provided us with more historical information about topics from Neanderthal man to the Middle Ages.
Switzerland's largest archaeological museum stands on the spot where remains of three prehistoric sites were discovered: 3000 fascinating finds that illustrate our ancestors' everyday lives, on an exhibition area of 2200 m2. Authentic, faithful reproductions are on show in an archaeological park.
In addition to guided tours, workshops are offered for various interest groups. The boat trip between Neuchâtel harbour and the Laténium's jetty is free of charge.
