When it’s raining cats and dogs during the summer holidays. Or when it’s too hot to stay outside for long. Or when you’re having “one of those days” and don’t know how to keep the kids entertained. That’s the perfect opportunity to visit one of the air-conditioned Ghent museums for a refreshing dose of culture. 

Art and culture don’t take leave, on the contrary: they work overtime during the Thursday Late events. For those long, hot days might inspire you to take the spur-of-the-moment decision to visit a museum after the aperitif. Or do you prefer to immerse yourself in culture by day? In that case, it’s a good idea to combine your visit with a picnic and travel from one cultural hotspot to another by rental bike or the water tram. Sounds like the perfect thing to do with your entire family? That’s right, most museums offer great activities for children.
