Haspengouw in Limburg is famous for its fruit and traditional square
farmsteads. A copy of the village of Ulbeek as it looked around the
middle of the 19th century was created for the Haspengouw section of the
museum. The houses and buildings are concentrated around a small
village square with two ponds and lime trees. These days, it is where
you can meet the Bokrijk actors who transport you back to the year 1913.
The priest can be heard giving his fire-and-brimstone sermon in the
church, while the village schoolmaster or schoolmistress give lessons in
the village schoolroom.
