Great little museum - and free!

Went specifically to see the work of a local artist, but it was a great little museum and we really enjoyed all of it.

Small but diverse museum
Feb 2017 • Solo
This is a small museum housed in a converted hospital build in 1600. Entrance is for free, and inside the 4 famous "Aalstenaars" are honoured, from Dirk Martens who was the first printer in this part of the world, father Daens, who was fought for worker conditions (and was therefore thrown out of the church), Louis Paul Boon an author also engaged with the working class men, and Saedeleer, a painter. The last one is represented with a room of his paintings and some of his etches. There is also a room with modern Belgian art. Further the museum has a section on Carnival in Aalst, which now is listed as immaterial UNESCO World Heritage. Well worth a visit, but explanations seemed to be only in Dutch.

Nice local museum
Jun 2015 • Friends
Museum about the history and culture of Aalst. Not very big. If you're in Aalst I would definitely go there.
Nice building. Used to be an hospital.
They have a permanent exhibition and hold temporary exhibitions on regular basis.
Entry is free.

Great local museum, covers all eras
Jul 2015 • Couples
This is truly a very interesting town museum, set in both a modern building and a cloister. It has the added advantage of being free!

There is a good display covering the history of the carnival in Aalst with video. Following this you can explore the chapel and cloisters left from the original ecclesiastical building. The rooms also contain further displays on what happened in Aalst during WW1 & WW2, and the author Paul Boon.

Well worth a visit.
