The old horse-drawn hearse of the former municipality of Vucht was beautifully restored in 2018. Since the end of April 2019, the hearse has been on permanent display in the Vucht Church, located on the Dorpsstraat in Maasmechelen. A second restored hearse was added in the spring of 2020, creating the beginnings of a funerary museum.

The church in Uikhoven is the first church in Maasmechelen with a new cultural purpose. One part of the church has been preserved for holding services, while the other part has been set up as a local history museum. The whole thing was renamed ‘Kijkkerk’ on 22 June 2018.

 

A kijkkerk (museum church) is a museum where not only church treasures are displayed, but also old objects and interesting stories are given a place. The exhibition highlights a number of local topics, such as the herbalist Pastor Goossens, the perils of the Maas River, the razor wire during the war, the first ferryman, the pumping station, and the festivals.

In the future, the museum will be expanded with interesting themes, visual material, and antiques so that the history of the Maas village of Uikhoven and of the entire municipality of Maasmechelen will not be lost.

 

Work is in progress on a permanent display, supplemented by changing exhibitions.

 

The museum can be visited during Heritage Day, on Wednesdays and Sundays during the summer, or by appointment.
