  • 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.

  • Cannot switch from Ostend and not visit the House where he lived for almost forty years, James Ensor, one of the great forerunners of expressionism. None of his paintings is on display, there's a reproduction of the "Entry of Christ in Brussels" (the original is at the Getty in Los Angeles). In the three different levels of the House we see the furniture and objects which had been surrounded. At the entrance to perfect, so much as to seem original, stops in time and the reconstruction of the souvenirs of his uncle. Information materials in French and English. Except Tuesday is open from 10 am to 12 and from 14 to 17, the symbolic entrance of €2.

  • 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.
