Nestled in the green forest of Bokrijk is Belgium's largest open air museum. More than one hundred authentic buildings paint a poignant picture of the life of yesteryear in the Flemish countryside. You will be submerged in the craftmanship of then and now. Stand in awe during demonstrations or try your hand in one of the workshops and go home with an original handmade souvenir. Step back in time in 'The sixties' expo with interiors typical of the era. Iconic record covers, film fragments from TV shows and festivals, as well as unique collection pieces will whisk you back in time where you will (re)live life in the swinging 60s. Music journalist Jan Delvaux tells captivating stories from pop music history. You will not just experience how 'rock 'n roll' historiy is, but the children or grandchildren will have the time of their life in the large open air playground at Bokrijk. Or enjoy nature, walking or cycling, through the 550 hectare domain with its beautiful arboretum.
