Open Air Museum Bokrijk, Genk

(4.1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful interactive outdoor museum and fun outdoor children's playground. After playing you can dine in the Coach House, both inside and out on the lovely terrace. Check out the website for the special seasonal occupation. Well worth the effort.
