Went there on recommendations but we didn't quite enjoy the exhibits. We didn't have a tour guide nor an audio so it may explain why our experience was so poor. Besides some larger boards in each room which are in several languages, the vast majority of the smaller boards under objects, paintings etc were only in Dutch which meant we... More

If you do want to know something real about Ghent, please go. It has a big, beautiful collection, it's very interesting, and it makes me proud to call Ghent my home.

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
