History Museum Museum
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.

  • Just over the border at Limburg (NL) a fantastic set up open air museum with a free playground. Open air museum is affordable and is in fact a village from past. All crafts are there and also several farmhouses. Various catering events and activities for the kids. Play as well as both old Dutch crafts (pottery, baking bread, hammering etc). Absolute must is a 10-minute school time. You can imagine yourself in 100 years back in time. Children's playground that is the open air museum in Bokrijk, outside, is free and is 150 m outside the open air museum. Absolutely free and the quality of them children's playground is super. Children's playground if valve is fun but also to just a day to spend (for each age war to do-is same for that it is so in the necessary amenities for a 10.8 and 5 year old that everyone is entertained).

  • During a bike ride in the surprisingly beautiful Limburg we had in our preparation certainly 91 node (cycling between the water) and when we were there passed we decided also the open air museum a quick visit. That quick visit is several hours blurred because once you've gone there in forget your all time notions. Surprise, surprise, respect for traditions ..... the rest of our planning is entirely upside down but I didn't want to miss.
