Museums

More museums in Ghent than you can visit in three days! Some highlights:

  • STAM, Ghent City Museum: Unmistakably contemporary against an unique historical background, the museum tells the story of Ghent through inspiring collection pieces and interactive multimedia.
  • Museum of Fine Arts: Never before have the old masters and modernists hung so perfectly in place as they do in this iconic museum building.
  • S.M.A.K.: The permanent collection of top national and international works in contemporary art is presented in continuous interaction with original, often daring exhibitions at this place.
  • Dr. Guislain Museum: A museum in Belgium’s oldest psychiatric hospital, built in 1857: you’d be crazy not to pay it a visit. In this wonderful oasis you will find a permanent collection that illustrates the history of psychiatry and an international collection of outsider art or art brut.
