The world of Kina is a nature museum for children. Here you stand open-mouthed looking at the beauty of the natural history collection. You can see the collection in a child-friendly setting with accessible scientific information. Must touch! Explore and discover in a playful way how resourceful the nature around us is.
Over the years, the collection of our very first curator Leo Michel Thiery has grown into a veritable treasure trove. Every time you turn a corner, a new discovery awaits. Minerals, fossils, insects, shells, birds and more!
Dream away in Flanders’ oldest botanical garden, where you’ll find some 1,500 kinds of plants. Inside, we’ll tell you a little more about bees, spiders, plants and mushrooms. You’re also welcome to meet our live tarantulas!
