Head to Museum Voor Schone Kunsten to see its extensive collection of Flemish art from the Middle Ages to the first half of the 20th century.

Gallery rooms are designed to accommodate large groups, while the benches give you a place to sit and contemplate the artwork. You'll find information cards in English inside each room that give details and background about the paintings. For more insight into the work displayed, rent an audio guide or join a guided tour. You can purchase tickets at the reception desk upon your arrival, or use the Citycard Gent to gain access.

  • Brilliant experience. We loved it's eclectic mix and the rooms that showed things like portraits through the ages! Nice bar at the bottom too, although they adhere to strict kitchen opening times. So if you want to eat plan that into your itinerary!
  • Staff were friendly! But the art wasn’t to my taste! Some of the older more classical parts where okay but the more modern installations weren’t very good! The best part was the draw your own kids section!
