Interesting exhibition especially for kids with interactive visit (videos on screen, animations, games...). Not too expensive and free for Tienen inhabitants. There's a shop with many local specialties (jam, beers,alcohol...) and a coffee (open soon) beside to the museum.

They are obviously trying to do a decent job but somehow it just does not really work. Interesting location specific audio system (various languages) which is too clunky. A lot of the info seems to date from 2005 so hopefully that will be updated too....More

The museum tells the story of sweeteners, starting with honey used during the Roman period till the modern non-sugar sweeteners that are being developed. As Tienen is the sugar capital of Belgium, it is an appropriate museum. Sadly, the information given was not too interesting,...More

This museum tells the story of the production of sugar in the area around Tienen. Production steps from the beet harvest until the final product are explained quite well. Many of the used machines are shown. The story is told over an audioguide, which forces...More

I went to visit it with 2 of my friends. It was interesting to see but no so much for children older than 12. It's interactive and has a modern touch. You get a headset (availible in Dutch, French, German or English) or children's headset...More

Small but very attractive museum in the hart of Tienen. This is the place to go to if you want to find out everything about sugar and sweets. Professor Zucchero, the virtual guide, has got an unique gift making it possible for people to become...More
