The story of Ghent
STAM's permanent exhibition is 'The Story of Ghent'. A chronological trail takes you on a trip through time, making Ghent...permanent
Entitled 'The Story of Ghent’, the permanent circuit follows a clear chronological trail leading through six rooms of the museum, each of which encapsulates a period in the city’s history. More than 300 awesome collection pieces illustrate this story, while multimedia applications provide more in-depth information.
There are also two themed ‘bypaths’ in the form of large-format photographs by Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer which act as a bridge to the modern-day city, there are listening benches which tell us what all sorts of famous people think about Ghent, and there is an ever-changing gallery of the future.
Cities face a series of challenges. A city is never a finished product, and Ghent is growing.23.10.2016 till 07.05.2017
