Do you wish to learn everything about tobacco and its history? Then you’re in the right place. The Tobacco museum is based in the ranked and renovated Briekenmolen. You will discover the history of the tobacco cultivation and consumption in the museum. You will also find reconstructions of an authentic tobacco shop and a tobacco manufacturer. In total, more than 2,000 items are exhibited (pipes, tobacco pots, lighters, ashtrays, snuffboxes…). Recently, several rooms were also redecorated in light of the 100 year commemoration of the Great War: tobacco and war are surely intimately related. What is the old saying: “No Smoke, No Soldiers”?
