  • An exciting experience! A museum that tells you stories about punishments and crimes from the Middle Ages to the present and, the story of the vagabond colony in the Noorderkempen. Scenes, objects, photos, texts and a video film give you an idea behind the bars.
  • Beautiful domain with the original buildings in which vagrants had to work and stay! At least 600 hectares with buildings that are being restored.
