Great museum with thematic expositions. We really enjoyed it as we had a connection with both: one on military service, featuring a documentary about the location I had done mine. The other exposition brought back memories of our childhoods. 😀

It's situation is probably more attractive than it's contents.It's housed in an old Alm's House on the banks of the river. We only noticed it as we were walking along Kranlei on our way to Gravensteen. It's situated in a pleasant little courtyard through a small opening. As it was included in our Hi belgium pass we thought we'd visit. It's worth a look.

This lovely museum has been created within former Almshouses and is alongside the river in the historic Patershoi district. It is built around an attractive courtyard and is interesting display of historical artefacts.

Great concept, but not sure about the execution. Children didn't really engage much and a very small museum. Fine if you have the city pass as we did.
