Wild about design? Be sure to visit the Design Museum Gent. A modern, open building lurks behind a magnificent 18th century façade.

The Design Museum Gent will be closed for two years from 7 March 2022.

This impressive city residence in Rococo style was bought by the City of Ghent in 1922, and used it to house the Design Museum. The temporary exhibitions complement the magnificent permanent collection, from art nouveau to trends in contemporary design.
