I have been to the jenever museum in Schiedam (NL) before, and they are quite similar. I found this museum in Hasselt slightly more attractive though. The best thing about both places is that they offer smells of all kinds of extracts. In Schiedam there were maybe 4 bottles to smell - here there are dozens. Both places explain the... More

For 6 Euros you get a nice tour of the museum which is located in a pretty part of Hasselt. You get informed about the producting of "juniperus" and at the end you can taste a small glass .... Friendly staff at the entrance and also at the "bistro".

If you want to learn how the making of this boose started you will get a very complete explanation from a guide, from start to finish, from barley/wheat etc... to a very tasty "jenever". A must do when you visit Hasselt!

Situated in the city center of Hasselt, this museum is housed in an old city farm; that has belonged to a monastery. After the french invasion ca. 1800 it was installed as a distillery for jenever. You find here everything about the proces of making g(j)enever and all other stuff that has something to do with spirits. So you'll learn... More

anything you ever wanted to know about jenever. Great museum with a bit theory but also a bit of experimenting and interaction. And at the end a taster. A must when you visit hassel.
