Every first Thursday of the month, the Ghent museums open their doors for a nocturnal event. On those nights, you can admire the current exhibitions and collections until 10 pm.

Every first Thursday of the month, the Ghent museums are open a little longer, until 10 pm. You really should experience the atmosphere of late-night culture. First having something to eat and then discovering some art, science or history sounds great, right? During the late Thursdays, many museums are happy to give a little something extra, such as a lecture, a concert or a guided tour. Combine your late-night museum visit with the Ghent Light Plan walk and you will have gained two experiences. If you have bought a CityCard Gent, you will get even more benefits from your card the first Thursday of the month, as you’ll have more time to discover various museums.

Tip: many museum cafés are also open longer during Late Thursday
