At STAMplein square, a separate part of the museum with changing programmes, you can visit the heritage project “The square kilometre”. Here you can learn all about the Dampoort neighbourhood.

Historian in residence Tina de Gendt and researcher Thirza Vandenabeele delve deep into the history of the area around the Gent-Dampoort railway station. Contrary to Ledeberg, Rabot and Brugse Poort, which were the central topic of the project “The square kilometre”, the Dampoort area is not what you could call a “neighbourhood”. It is composed of parts of the districts Ham, Macharius, Dendermondsesteenweg and Antwerpsesteenweg.
