Het Design Museum - Review
Set inside a Flemish Bourgeois building, this museum was opened in 1992. The inner courtyard of the building faces an 18th century facade. The oldest collections comprise of 17th and 18th century interior decorations and furnishings including chandeliers and murals; there’s an extensive collection of Art Noveau items as well as Art Deco. The furniture and sculptures are startlingly cheeryand includes a smattering of post-modernist work. Apart from all this the museum also hold temporary exhibitions on contemporary decoration these are always fresh and unexpected. The museum is one of the best things you could do in Ghent.

Het Design Museum, Ghent Reviews
Really enjoyed this visit. While we were there there were two distorted mirrors and music playing - try dancing in front of them - wild ! Nice old mansion with some original decoration and one excellent furnished room. Eclectic collection. Well worth a visit with Gent City Card
Again another Museum in Gent trying to offer something different, it's also in a great part of the city. Nice collection on show. Good thought behind how the work is displayed. Interesting temporary show when I visited.
Quite a large museum with some very interesting objects (one that stood out for me was the Damascus steel knife with mammoth ivory handle). There was a performance art exhibition on at the time we visited, which actually gelled well with the themes of the museum. The shop is delightful - beware of frittering away all your holiday spends here it's quite easily done
Don't really know what to say. Not our thing. Plain weird. Expensive when put alongside other attractions in Ghent. Once we had reached a more interesting bit, the decor became like an Escher staircase all in white, seemingly floating with glass sections and I am afraid my vertigo kicked in so we didn't go any further.
Interesting museum depicting everything around design. Their exhibition on Robots is striking and thought-provoking. It only costs €2 for adults under 25: you'd be silly not to go. Tip: take a camera with you. The museum knows how to turn design into gorgeous photos.
