Maasmechelen has plenty to choose from if you’re looking for a cultural outing with the kids. These excursions can be perfectly combined with a more active activity like a hike or a bike ride. That way, you enjoy your day to the fullest.

Railway Brick Museum

Enter a LEGO paradise for just €5 per person. The first museum with LEGO bricks in Belgium. The museum is located in the old traditional bakery of Leut, and is divided into three parts. The first part is based on the history of more than 50 years of LEGO trains. You’ll see old trains built from LEGO bricks set in the landscapes of their time. The trains run through a variety of modern and fictional landscapes in the second part of the museum. From Harry Potter to a winter wonderland to an amusement park. You’ll see it all. The common thread remains trains. The last part of the museum changes four times a year. Anyone who thinks this museum is only to be observed would be wrong. There are special LEGO play tables and a treasure hunt through the museum for kids. Definitely worth a visit!


Children’s Museum

A laptop, tablet, smartphone, the internet, and all kinds of apps. It is impossible to imagine our lives without these things today, and certainly not the lives of the younger generations. But what was life like 80 years ago? This experience museum wants to answer that question.

Young people will discover a completely different world here and be catapulted back in time. But it’s also a fun, nostalgic trip for older folks. Whether old or young, this museum is a nice introduction for everyone. Guided tours are available for groups of up to 10 people. The museum is open by reservation only.


Museum of the Miner’s Home

Enter the Museum of the Miner’s Home and discover how workers lived in the 1930s. The typical furniture, common wallpaper, specific painting techniques, crackling radio, and original power distributor take you back to those times. The renovation and refurbishment of the museum began in 1995. The museum is located in the heart of the Garden District. Fun fact: The interior scenes from the film Marina, the romanticised life story of musician Rocco Granata by Stijn Coninx, were shot in the museum. The museum is open by appointment only.
