Entry to the city museum of Hasselt is free. For that, one gets a fairly rich history starting with some prehistoric findings, continuing with the medieval county of Loon, of which Hasselt became the capital, and some events in subsequent centuries, such as the battle of Hasselt between the Dutch and Belgian armies.

The history of Hasselt and some other object collected all together. Not too much to see but it is somehow interesting as all the museums. The fact that there is free entrance can be also interesting, you have nothing to lose in giving a glance. So feel free to inform yourselves about the story of this small city.

Het Stadsmus is the city museum of Hasselt. It's free to visit and exhibits several things related to the city of Hasselt, like information on ongoing projects, items related to the city and information on the city's history. It's nice to visit if you have some time left, but I wouldn't say it's a must see.
