Since time immemorial, mankind has been looking for eternal life. This exhibition in the House of Alijn takes you on a journey of discovery through the aids we used in the 20th and 21st centuries in the hope of achieving a long, healthy and happy life.

Every day, we come across all kinds of advice to take better care of ourselves, both physically and mentally. Throughout the ages, the ideas about this topic have changed, and science, the government, the media and advertising have come to play a bigger role. This exhibition will tell you all about it. Families with children aged 5 to 12 can go on a special family tour of the exhibition.

This activity takes place on a location within the low emission zone

Are you driving to Ghent? First check whether you may enter the city centre with your vehicle. Clean vehicles may enter the city centre free of charge, polluting vehicles have to pay. Is your vehicle allowed to enter, but do you not have a Belgian or Dutch number plate? You will ALWAYS have to register!
