We stopped in Hasselt for the Jenever festival and found the museum very impressive and interesting. Well worth a visit. Great range of different flavours of gin available here also

WoW what an amazing experience, very reasonable prices but during the Jenever festival in October entrance is free. We were surprised with some of the history and loved the interaction. Most languages were catered for
