Museum Night Ghent is coming with a light edition during the spring holiday, on Thursday 3 March
Finally! After a postponement in December, Museum Night in Ghent exceptionally returns in March with a more modest edition. On Thursday 3 March, eleven museums will open their doors for free. A journey through the best collections and exhibitions with zero worries. The museums open until 10 pm, they ask to wear face masks and to make your reservation beforehand, because each museum limits the number of visitors. So make sure to book your ticket(s) online, because full = full.
For once, you will have to plan your Museum Night Light in advance. Be surprised by what the museums have to offer, plan your route and combine two or three museums at once. Booking (per museum) online is easy and completely free!
Be sure to visit Design Museum Ghent, because after that weekend the museum will be closing its doors for two years. In S.M.A.K. you can visit the 'POPART' exhibition, in the Museum of Industry you can see 'Kassa kassa!' and in STAM you can visit ‘The square kilometre: Neuseplein & Brugse Poort' and ‘The Story of Ghent’. In the House Of Alijn you can visit the exhibition 'Into the streets' and the new 'Jong' room about youth culture, in the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK) the Belmundo Festival will take place and you can visit the permanent collection, in the St Peter’s Abbey you can go on a ‘Wondrous Voyage’ and in the new GUM you can dive into the heads of scientists. Dr Guislain Museum, The World of Kina and the Kunsthal Gent will also remain open for a great evening.
