The medieval monuments and UNESCO-listed landmarks of Ghent are even more impressive when viewed from the water. On this tour, set sail along the River Leie on a scenic 40-minute cruise. Pass the Castle of Counts and the Butcher’s Hall, cruise past the Graslei port, and learn more about Ghent’s history and cultural heritage as you listen to the live on-board commentary.

the impressive map photo of Ghent alone is worth a visit. But also the setting is great. The museum is part of an ipmpressive historic surrounding.

Visited the museum at the end of our stay so we already had seen a lot...would probably recommend to do it early. A lot to see, maybe a bit too much, many rooms show a lot which makes it a bit dry. The audioguide is somewhat helpful but a bit dry.

Ghent has a rich and fascinating history but unfortunately this museum does not present it in a clear or accessible way. The displays are chaotic; the labels are only in Dutch; and the stickers with the audio guide codes were often missing. The whole thing smacks of provincialism and N-VA pettiness. The directors should visit the city history museums in Nantes and Strasbourg, which are really well done. When we visited the STAM, there were not enough audio guides to go around. Only after we insisted did they give us one to share between the two of us. This is a problem that could be solved with an app. En bref, very disappointing and a waste of time!

This is a must go to museum. This incorporates a medieval abbey and modern museum buildings. The collection is focussed around Ghent and its place in history. I cannot praise it enough.
