Museum has really good exhibits

Museum is right next to where there is one of the Water Taxi stops (which only runs at the weekend).

Well that is what we thought. A place with an interesting story inside to tell. Loved the photo on the first floor literally. Cafe nice also. Glad we went

We spent around three hours here and you could easily spend more. Lots to see and learn about Ghent present and past, with very well presented exhibitions and lots of variety. Good book shop and lovely café too.

An absolute must if you visit Ghent. An extremely well presented history of Ghent in an historic building with sympathetic modern extensions. Walk on the plan of the city (see photo)

Very good museum about the history of the town. Good use of space within this old building. Interesting objects and images, don't miss the reconstructed room from the town hall.

We visited primarily to see the impressive maps of Ghent and the surrounding area through time, but we unexpectedly became so absorbed in the rest of the exhibits we ended up staying longer than intended. Using the Ghent citycard gave us a day's bicycle hire...More

Unlike many museums, this you can walk around comfortably in a couple of hours. Based on an old convent, there is much about the history of Ghent. There is also a café.

Chronological museums are a little out of fashion in many countries but for a city museum it works well, and this romp through Ghent's history over the last 2,000 years plus is excellent. There are many fine artifacts, particularly for the medieval period and being...More
