Cosy, small museum about history of strawberries and Wepion strawberry cultivation traditions. The hosts are very friendly, the host explained everything very interestingly and gave plenty of recommendations about "must sees" in the region. And yes, he knows a lot about strawberries, and Wepion's history. The visit to the museum lasts some 20-25 minutes, and you can also taste some strawberry- based products (juice, etc.). You can buy tickets i advance (via internet), or at place. There is a nice souvenirs' corner too. We also liked very much the garden (which is a part of the museum), on the other side of the road - you can see famous Belgian strawberry varieties ("Joly"), wine grapes, raspberries, blackberries, figs, mulberries, small orchard of ornamented apple/pear trees, even exotic fruits corner. some 800 m. away there is a "strawberry" kiosk , you can buy strawberries there (decently priced) . In front of "strawberry" kiosk (you cant miss it - it is plastic "strawberry" booth, near parking along the Moselle river) there is an Ice Cream restaurant - "Fleur de lait". It is open during Corona-pandemic, they let 3 persons at a time. The taste is just "the best", and, of course, they serve strawberry ice cream too (sorbet de la fraise). If you pass by, of have spare time after the visit to Namur - dont miss the museum1

We could only make a quick visit to this quirky small museum. The displays are helpful and well designed with English notes. It is only tiny though and cute . The garden opposite is well worth a visit , with many examples of berry fruits.

Short video viewing (different languages) at the beginning, then watch the panels and object. There is a local product tasting the end. The Strawberry juice we had was refreshing, not sweet and delicious. Very kind staff.

The museum itself is quite small and contains a history of strawberry growing in the area, which is reputed to have the best strawberries in Belgium. After you've seen the exhibition they offer you a taste of products produced in the area. These include liqueurs, beers and juice all made with strawberries. Make sure you go to the fruit garden down the road which is part of the museum. It contains a wide range of fruit which you're allowed to pick and taste. There are varieties of strawberry that you've never even heard of, including one that tastes like bread! Definitely not to be missed.
