Head to Museum Voor Schone Kunsten to see its extensive collection of Flemish art from the Middle Ages to the first half of the 20th century. The building was designed by Charles van Rysselberghe in the early 20th century and houses not only works from the Southern Netherlands, but also paintings from other European countries. Gallery rooms are designed to accommodate large groups, while the benches give you a place to sit and contemplate the artwork. You'll find information cards in English inside each room that give details and background about the paintings. For more insight into the work displayed, rent an audio guide or join a guided tour. You can purchase tickets at the reception desk upon your arrival, or use the Citycard Gent to gain access.

  • Bit out of the city centre but in a lovely park. Large collection of art ranging from the Flemish primitive to realist and surrealist masterpieces. Lovely audio guide. The building is spacious and easy to get lost in. The tour is about 2 hours long.
  • Very good. Some old masters, modern, surrealism & weird. Like all art museums not enough time to look at all fully if just visiting the city. Highly recommend.
