Huis Van Alijn - Review

This is one of the weirdest museum’s you’ll ever visit. It’s basically a house an almshouse that’s supposed to send you back in time. What it actually looks like is as if the many-Earths theory was true and the inhabitants of the people from different versions of the same house are represented here. There are vintage TVs, wedding gowns, old cashier boxes, antique furniture, jigsaw puzzles, classic baby rockers even a freaking wedding cake! There’s literally nothing the place hasn’t covered. And as for the history of the building itself… lets just say you’ll have a lot more fun finding out on site. It makes the mundane sacred. It’s fascinating and it’s disorienting and it really is an intimate view into the evolution of Gent as a city, in terms of culture and lifestyle. It does what the City Museum cant make Gent personal.

Huis Van Alijn, Ghent Reviews

  • A small and welcoming museum with an interesting storyline and nostalgic daily-life collections. Recalls good-old memories and tells some unknown stories behind the Belgian daily routine. There are also some cute interactive installations, family and kids friendly.

  • Small but very interesting. Child friendly and a lot of fun!

  • This museum is a r'efreshing change. Set in a beautiful house you'll get to discover the typical life of a family in throughout the XXth century. The museum is very pedagogical : you've got videos, various everyday items and even some "fragrance" to smell. I really loved the part with the old toys, I recognized a few from my childhood ;) Everything is written i n three languages : Dutch, French, English so it should be easy for everyone to understand it.

  • Nice museum about how people used to live. Too bad some things on display lack information.

  • Cute museum with nice concepts. If you wanna know more about Flemish cultures, this museum is for you.
