the story of ghent

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.
