Welcome to the Hasselt Fashion Museum

Curious what we have to offer?

Hasselt Fashion Museum is housed in a unique seventeenth-century building known as the Oud Gasthuis (“old guesthouse”). While we do not have a permanent collection, we do stage two fascinating exhibitions every year. We always highlight different themes and objects, so feel free to visit us as often as you like.
