Collection Jukebox Museum De Panne
For years, the Jukebox Museum De Panne in Belgium was known as one of the largest jukebox and radio collections in Europe. The private collection of collector Geert Olieu includes well-known showpieces such as the Wurlitzer 2100 and Rock-Ola Tempo 2 model 1478, as well as rare jukeboxes from Mills, Packard, United and European brands such as Bergman and Jupiter. The museum was supposed to become a tourist attraction in Ostend, but closed its doors due to low visitor numbers.
