Imagine you live in a city in the Middles Ages

Or a little later in history. What would be different from the city you live in now? Back then, cities weren’t dormitory towns – they were the place you went to get everything you needed. If you were ill, you went to the apothecary. If you were thirsty, you went to the brewer to buy beer, which was much safer than drinking water at the time. There were tanners for shoes and weavers for fabrics.

How much did life in the city then differ from today’s urban life? And what’s still the same? The Limburgs Museum takes you on a journey through an old city and shows you how people used to live. You’ll discover that you have much more in common with your ancestors than you thought!
