Ghent has something from every period of history and that also applies to the STAM - Ghent City museum: the 14th-century abbey, the 17th-century monastery and the new 21st-century development together form the Ghent City museum. Unmistakably contemporary against an unique historical background, the museum tells the story of Ghent through inspiring collection pieces and interactive multimedia. Past, present and future are illustrated in a clear and interesting trail, detailing Ghent’s transformation from a medieval metropolis into a city of knowledge and culture.
 
A wonderful location - the restored Bijloke Abbey, an enormous aerial photo on an illuminated glass floor, white LEGO towers that invite visitors to build their very own story of Ghent… The Ghent City museum offers a surprising adventure both through its collection and presentation – in an unforgettable journey through time you’ll discover what made Ghent the city it is today.
 
Moreover, temporary exhibitions delve deeper into what makes a city a city.
 
The Ghent City museum is the ideal place to start your cultural discovery of Ghent.
