In Kortrijk 1302 the approach is also incredibly child-friendly. Traces of the past, chain mail and goedendags (spiked staffs) hold the attention of the student knights and princesses. Henceforth they will be experts in the Middle Ages.

At Texture children become acquainted with the wondrous world of flax. Staf Stekel lives at the museum and gets up to all kinds of antics. He’ll be there waiting for the children.
