“Interesting place to visit if you want to learn more about the history of Ghent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you are interested in the history of this old city it is worth a visit. If you're only in Ghent for the day: visit the city itself and not this museum!

“If you have one musuem to visit in Ghent, then go to STAM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Nice green space around the museum. The displays are very pleasing, and organized in chronological order. And you would learn so much about Ghent's history.

“excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

An interesting history with some beautiful artifacts. Well worth the short tram ride to visit. The english guidebook is a little short on explanation of all the exhibits which is a shame.

“Growing entity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We loved the experience at STAM and were really excited to see the more interactive and hands-on exhibits that are becoming part of this valuable record of the history and progress of this wonderful city.
