  • a small museum by the Belgian artist-Impressionist. On the ground floor works antique souvenir shop, who worked at the time. On the second floor of a film about the artist and his life. On the third floor of his house itself-two interesting decorated rooms and reproductions of paintings. The curious Museum, recommend.

  • James Ensor is a modern Belgium flourished from the late 19th century to the early 20th century painter. From its unique style is called 'mask painter". Spent about 30 years later the Ensor House here is. Uncle restored souvenir shop is on the first floor, second floor, showing photographs of the scenery of this era lived Ensor, Ensor himself. 3rd floor Studio / residence, decorated with some of his works, such as, will let slip its furnishings, such as era. Many number of pieces is not a magical world of his staff room decorations and furnishings. Also reception is very friendly and helpful staff.

  • It's worth visit the house of James Ensor. A new building aside his house will be restored during approximately 1 year. Now, his most and main masterpieces are not exposed here though it's interesting to see where he lived and worked. Biggest masterpiece "Entrée du Christ" in Brussels is exposed in Los Angels museum Paul Getty and other works in Antwerp.
  • Great history and an authentic house but it could have been presented better.
  • Small museum gives good impression of Ensor's life
  • Legend has it Marvin Gaye stayed here in the early 80's to escape his US tax debt.
  • Well worth a visit! I personally had just a little more than expected, but his works remain Ensor wonderful to see!

Where to stay in Ostend

For a room with a view, seek out accommodations along Ostend's waterfront. A hostel caters to those looking for a more economical place to rest for the night. If your budget is more flexible, try a large hotel or cozy bed and breakfast with easy access to the beach. Because Ostend is a small city, the price range doesn't fluctuate much according to location, so prioritize based on proximity to the waterfront.
