This museum is worth seeing, even when it's empty. Ideal combination of ancient and modern building.Hint: walk from the center of Ghent. Go alone or (only with official guides) to get to know the local history and stories!

Showing the city of Gent from its origin until today. Well presented using all kind of up to date method of communications. Recommended to visit to all people from Gent, but even more for tourists. Taking a guide was very helpful and got us even more interested.

The amount of content is a bit limited but what is there is of top quality.Anyone interested in the history of this amazing city should visit. If you do, be sure to get the audio set - there is limited... More

A very interesting look at the history and indeed future of Ghent in a very educational environment. I can imagine lots of school parties coming here as it's quite interactive if you speak Flemish. Enough for 8€ to be worth while and keep you entertained for an hour or so.

We were offered audio guides but thought we wouldn't need them, however there wasn't a lot of information in English (which is totally fine as this museum isn't in England- arrogant of us to presume there would be!) We were happy though wandering around looking at everything and reading the bits that were. The best part in my opinion was... More
