With dilapidated buildings that were doomed to disappear, Kasterlee created an ecomuseum near Keeses' Molen, in collaboration with the local history association. The site is called De Waaiberg, derived from the ancient name of the area; it is a testament to the architectural style and way of living in the Kempen in the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. You can visit a long-walled farmhouse, long shed, baking shed, bee shed and cart house. (text by www.museumprijs.be)
Every second Sunday of the month you can visit the ecomuseum for free from 2 pm to 5 pm (except in July and August). Group visits with a guide need to be booked 2 weeks in advance at the Kasterlee tourist office. A visit takes about an hour.
Various themed tours are possible;
- Life on the farm around 1900
- Eating habits of a farmers family
- Farm life (childrens tour)
