Good museum to get to know your Gin

Well laid-out museum that gives deeper insight into the history and varieties of the many gin types to be found in the BeNeLux.

The Jenever Museum is fittingly housed in what used to be a jenever brewery. You can see a lot of the old machinery that was used to brew jenever and you can choose what machine you want to learn more about on an interactive screen. At the Jenever Museum, you won't only learn about the process of making jenever, but... More

A great on your own tour with headphone stations for more info showing local history from surrounding towns. Great that it is still made by Smets just around the corner... It was a tease at the end to smell all the infused choices and then only get two to sample. Was so looking forward to chocolate; alas it was plain... More

I was there today together with some friends and I found it really nice and interesting. You can hear on the headphones some nice stories about the Jenever distillation and to see some of the antiques machinery used to produce the spirit. Today was also the inauguration of the renewed museum and the entrance was for free and some actors... More

When we have been in the area we have gone to see this museum but it's never open. No times or anything on the door to help. If you are planning on going to see this then I suggest you contact them beforehand to check they are open. Not sure whether we will try a third time!

as the liquercity Hasselt has a jenevermuseum, but that is closed now for renovation untill 3 may of 2014! You can always download an app on your mobile phone that guides you through a walk of 2,4 km throughout the city and tells you the story!
