Dragons. They can be cantankerous and ugly, but they can also be cute and cuddlesome or stunningly beautiful. Meet heroes who slay dragons and dragons that protect us.
Friend or foe, the dragon is of all times and cultures. It is man who has given meaning to this mythical creature, who has bestowed on it the moral and physical qualities that make it distinctive. At the same time everything about a dragon’s outward appearance is also found in nature, including the fire-eating and multiple heads aspects.
This exhibition is a combination of fascinating cultural and historical objects, intriguing legends, links with the present day and pickled animals. Not forgetting the dragon’s skeleton put together specially for this exhibition!
Everyone, young and old should make a date with the dragon at STAM, a cross between fact and fiction. For children aged 6 and over there are ‘dragon rooms’ where they can look, read, build and play.
We recognize people by their silhouette, cities by their skyline. This exhibition challenges our often all too cursory glance at a city. STAM, in association with Museum Rotterdam.
Feel free to touch! A fun children’s trail that leads through every room in the museum. Children become merchants, craftspeople, architects or city trippers and participate in city life. They sell cloth, make coats of arms, face façades and work out routes.
STAM turned ten last year... time for a make-over for the permanent exhibition! Since the end of 2020 you can stroll through the new Story of Ghent.
