I like to experience spirits and beers from all countries I visit, Belgium was no exception. We tried a Janever after dinner and the waiter told us about the museum which we visit and found interesting

We stopped in Hasselt for the Jenever festival and found the museum very impressive and interesting. Well worth a visit. Great range of different flavours of gin available here also

We were handed the information leaflet in English, which was great, however, found it quite difficult to tie up to the exhibitions at times, so kind of lost interest in trying to figure out what did what and actually just read the leaflet. It was...More

We visited during a festival so it happened to be very busy. The displays themselves aren't in English but you are handed a sheet to wander round with, though I would say in parts it's difficult to reconcile what you're reading to the displays sometimes....More

That indeed is the question...I discovered it's quite an experience after my visit here. It comes in different full bodied flavours .Tastes good on its own or as a cocktail mix. Savour it!

The museum was an experience. The only downfall is that the English explanations were extremely minimal. And there were zero Spanish translations. Everything was in Dutch (obviously) I wish more language options were offered.

WoW what an amazing experience, very reasonable prices but during the Jenever festival in October entrance is free. We were surprised with some of the history and loved the interaction. Most languages were catered for
