The Laténium is an archeology museum located in Hauterive, a suburb of Neuchâtel in the Swiss Canton of Neuchâtel, on the shore of Lake Neuchâtel.

Its name refers to the La Tène culture.

The Laténium is composed of a 2500 m² park, and a museum building which also houses the archaeological section of the University of Neuchâtel.

The park features dolmens and erratic stones, reconstitutions of prehistoric and antique devices (a La Tène house, a gallo-roman ship and a Celtic bridge, notably), and modern works of art. The museum displays the Bevaix Boat, a 20-metre gallo-roman ship found in Bevaix.

Items from periods comprised between the paleolithic to the Roman empire are on display, including the remains of a Magdalenian hunting camp.
