Give yourself an introduction to the city at STAM Ghent City Museum, located inside a medieval refectory. The museum blends history with modern technology in a permanent multimedia circuit that leads you through the development of the town's society and culture. Follow this exhibit, called "The Story of Ghent," through its chronological presentation across six rooms. There are also themed photo exhibits, "listening benches" equipped with headphones that allow you to sit and listen to stories about Ghent from the voices of celebrities, as well as a gallery dedicated to the future. Guided tours of the museum are primarily for groups, so if you're traveling solo a self-guided tour is your best option. Book a tour of the city by boat, bike, or on foot from the museum. Arrange for a tour guide to meet you with bikes at the museum exit after your tour there. You can also purchase a Citycard Gent at the museum, which will get you discounted entry to almost every major attraction for three days.
