“Sint-Janshospitaal; Memling collection and plenty more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful old building housing a mix of local history of the nuns and monks, the hospital and religious art. A quiet and reflective space as the lighting is dimmed, which adds to the atmosphere. At the time of our visit an upper floor held an audio performance of Thomas Tallis 'Spem in alium 'for 40 voices. Listening to this was a high point of our visit.
Included in the museum card.
