“We are not makers of history. We are made by history” (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
If history is as important as stated by Martin Luther King in the above quote then it is surely something that needs to be learnt. Thankfully the pre-historic exhibitions of different museums of the world allow us to experience this history in a lot of detail. The Prehistoric Museum In Ramioul is no exception. It is also a place where you can enjoy countless artefacts and places of history. Let’s see the different ways through which you can enjoy this museum.
The museum lies a few kilometres outside, on the south-western side, of Liege. The Museum is more related to the pre-historic era and is nestled in the beautiful green forest of Ramioul. You can start your journey by first of all visiting the cave that lies on the edge of the forest. The cave is well preserved and in it you can study the living pattern of ancient civilization. You can have a nice photo session in the cave and see some of the artefacts that are still in place here.
After visiting the cave and spending some time there you can follow the trail that goes through the trees in order to stalk bison and reindeer, equipped with spears, arrows and bows. The museum focuses more on the practical aspects of learning and perhaps this is the reason why it is encouraged that you should get your inner caveman awakened.
Different things are shown to you once you enter into the village, such as you are given a practical demonstration of starting a fire without a match. The museum professionals will also show you the ancient methodology of sharping up the flint stone so that you may be able to cut up your lunch. Lastly, they will also give you a nice lecture on how to make a pot via clay. Overall, along with history, there are a lot of creative activities that can be enjoyed by you in the museum.
