Ghent's Museum of Fine Arts is a fine museum! It holds some really terrific works of art, by several well known and not so well known masters and other artists. It's certainly worthwhile going through it.

Anyone interested in Flemish and Belgian paintings should be prepared to spend at least 2 to 3 hours in this museum. The museum is located somewhat off the beaten track, away from the city center but within walking distance of the railway station.

It is open on Sundays (10 - 18) but like many museums in Europe it is closed on Mondays. You could try St Bavo's Cathedral instead on Monday if you are looking for something that is open.
