#1 of 8 in Things to do in Genk
Breathe in the fragrant countryside at Open Air Museum Bokrijk, an open-air museum that immerses you in the country's rural history. Inside the restored buildings, costumed craftsmen practice their trades, such as weaving, carving, and baking, while others recreate historical games and events from the 19th and 20th centuries. The houses are refurbished; you can tour them freely on your own. Head to the arboretum next to the museum, home to local varieties of trees that stand tall over the red brick buildings and a huge play area. The play area provides entertainment for children, while a restaurant on site serves local recipes. The parking fee and admission fee are charged separately.

Little animation (only Haspengouw was manned by actors and residents, many houses were closed, in o-and w-Flanders was all closed (only pigeon tower was open to the public). A hiccup was definitely the bakery. Where one could buy anything earlier was now all outrageously expensive. one is a wrong path here.

    We have the visit as worth experiencing. It was too much for us to do. The environment and decoration of the park are beautiful green and quiet. There were many things to do. Our daughter has really enjoyed the theater that there Wednesday afternoon for the children. The old fashion photographer was also really nice. For 5 euros you have a fun, old-fashioned family photo as you like and you also get it digital.
