  • Beautiful place, very interesting collection with so many artifact so probably won't have the time to see everything.
  • Museum Dr Guislain is very attractive for it's ancient art!
  • Excellent museum of mental health which is both interesting and thought provoking. Especially enjoyed the outsider art exhibition here. Well worth a visit!
  • Overall experience exceeded my expectation Peaceful courtyard.
  • Definitely worth the visit, very interesting exhibit on the history of psychiatry. Some of the exhibits lack a bit of direction and overall theme, but still noteworthy.

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
