The modern art museum is just in front of the Art Museum of Ghent (MSK Gent). The entrance fee is 6 EUR , what is OK given the quality of the - ever changing - selection that is shown. I live in Ghent so I go there 2-3 times a year, to have a look at the legacy of Jan Hoet - who founded the museum - and the ones who manage the museum know.
It is a 20-30' walk from the historic center of Ghent but the combination of the two museums justifies the travel time
