The Bokrijk Open Air Domain: much more than a museum!

Are you curious about where our current customs and traditions stem from? At the Bokrijk Open-Air Museum, you will discover how the past is inspiring our future! Come to Bokrijk and immerse yourself in the story of craftsmanship and admire our demonstrations or even roll up your sleeves and join in one of our fascinating workshops.

The Open-Air Museum is located in a 550-hectare park, which is a dream environment for hikers and cyclists. Visit the Arboretum or explore the De Wijers pond area with its 'Cycling through Water’ experience. Your children or grandchildren can enjoy themselves to their heart's content in our large outdoor playground, which is free of charge.
