About Museum Dr Guislain, Ghent

This is not the most standard of visits Belgium’s oldest psychiatric hospital. And while you might be thinking of creepy hauntings or stuff, the museum’s actually got decent exhibits on: a comprehensive history of psychiatry, acatalogue of photographs of the mentally-ill dating dating back to 1860, and a collection of outsider and brut art including works by the mentally disabled.

There’s a lovely computer module that actually lets you carry out some of the tests you’ll learn about. The whole experience is fascinating. Fun fact: the man after whom the museum is names is one of the first to define and defend the rights of the mentally ill.

  • This museum is very nice and the people are friendly. I found the exhibit was really interesting about the history of mental illnesses. Also they're every couple of months the special exhibit is really interesting.

  • Great museum about the history of psychology. Apart from the main exhibition, there's always one or more temporary exhibitions too. The museum itself is located inside one of the most beautiful historical buildings of Ghent.

  • This place is a must when in the area.the exhibitions are split into different areas and so engaging and informative. Site is beautiful and calm. A must is to visit the insider art section for some of the most interesting and dynamic art work Plenty of Parking at the Museum. Allow time for your visit We spent 4 hours here.very good value for money. Cafe on site excellent value 3 Euro's for coffee and 2 Pancakes!!!

  • Very original museum, different inside psychiatric center. In a beautifull old building. Has a cosy coffee bar too

  • Wonderful museum with psychiatry as a theme - definitely worth visiting
