  • The temporary Congo-village was really top. Here is a simulated village in Congo, with a barber shop, a disco, shops, a class. ... The children find it really fine and instructive, they may go through anywhere, can all touch ... The rest of the museum told us nothing, maybe we are there ... ... for. A large hall with a small work that they call art, a larger room with a smaller work. Thanks to the Congo village was still nice, otherwise really not recommended.

  • I became a "friend" of the museum, so that I can visit it whenever I want - given membership also gives me reductions on pieces of art, it pays for itself - the current exhibition downstairs wasn't my favorite - but upstairs was a great experience
  • i liked the congo part but the modern art stuff is just boring and hard to understand cause there is no explanation card on it
  • Where Jan meets his soul... Contemporary Art
  • Highcare
  • Just modern art. I was not touched by the exhibition. Small collection and a bit pricey.

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.
