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

  • Interesting. a lot of the history was very local and well curated. The tea rooms were very good as well. With the visit with a Gent citycard

  • Well done trip through time with the different yearly family events and traditional festivities over the year. You see the typical dresscodes, food, habits, things and items that were "in" at a certain epoche. Interesting interactive displays for children as well. You can spend 30 to 45 minutes in the museum.

  • 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.

  • Great exhibition! In an interesting setting

  • Very nice to go back in time and it is very well cleaned
