The archeodrome is nearly history
Millions of people had an educational stop during their trip to the south of France, thanks to the Archeodrome at a parking lot along the Autoroute du Soleil near Beaune. Over here, they learned about the Gaulish history until the year 1.000 a.C.
Nevertheless, the Archeodrome is nearly history. The nomber of visitors dropped from 250.000 a year way back in 1978 to no more than 40.000 a year. Now, autoroute owner SAPRR, who owns the Archeodrome too, wants to close it by october 31. Officially it is a temporary closing, according to tv-station France 3. However, the archeodrome is oldish, the staff is leaving and there's no one to buy it...

How terrible - such a historic park. I hope someone recovers it. It is so important to preserve the cultural examples of past civilization

Nog geen plannen voor overname/heropening?????
