At STAMplein square, a separate part of the museum with changing programmes, you can visit the exhibition “Heavy Metal”.

Finds from cities with a medieval past give us an insight into the daily lives, the work and the lifestyle of people living centuries ago. This exhibition highlights a rich, but underappreciated archaeological subject from our medieval cities: metal finds. The ‘Medieval Metal’ research project funded by the Flemish agency for immovable heritage (2020-2022) mapped the great diversity of metal objects from urban excavations. You can discover the results on STAMplein square.
