Dream pipe in center display case

Objects that are placed the central table display case in our museum are icons, visually attractive pieces that are more than worth a second look. This will also be the case for the next three months. However, this time we only show a small part of the object in question in this news item. Anyone who wants to know more is welcome to come along and hear the exceptional story behind this acquisition of the year. As thrilled as Neander was about this object in 1622, we are now with this special item. An object that is also impressive in size, so it does not fit in its entirety in the display case, but of course we show the major part!

Successful as usual

Museum Night 2023 was a beautiful evening despite the threat of dark clouds and heavy rain. To everyone's surprise it remained dry, so there was a coming and going of visitors, mainly young people and quite a few expats. We welcomed more than 430 guests, who were amazed by the freshly dried tobacco leaves imported from the Wervik region and enjoyed an accompanying Belgian smokey beer.

Tonight is the final preparations for Museum Night 2023. Our theme is the smell of tobacco. For this purpose we have purchased three cubic meters of freshly fermented tobacco, which will amaze every visitor with its specific and strong scent. The miracle herb is displayed in whole leaves on the smoking table in our museum, something you never see! But even more: what an arome! Come by tomorrow evening and you will get to know the museum in a unique way: tobacco pipes from all over the world, combined with the powerful smell of tobacco.
