Destination of the Day: Center for Belgian Culture

Belgian Waffles!

Belgian Waffles!

Moline, Illinois has a large population of Americans with Belgian ancestry. The Center for Belgian Culture/the Belgian Museum of the Quad Cities has taken on the task of preserving the region’s Belgian heritage. Visit the museum on a normal day and you’ll see displays about homing pigeons, Belgian lace, and a game called Rolle Bolle, which is all well and good, but come on the first Saturday morning of the month and you can see all those things plus eat real Belgian waffles!
