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.
