Stam Gent City Museum - Review

There is no single historical factor that influenced Gent more than others. The city has many layers to it’s identity it’s a cultural hotspot, a seaport, a student town and a historical destination. This city museum unveils these layers for the visitor. Over six rooms, the Story of Gent traces the medieval beginnings, the orthodox Early Modern Era, the Industrial Revolution to the present. The displays are nicely interactive, meaning you can immerse yourself in the stories, but with a touch of authenticity thanks to all the artefacts on display. The building itself is a beautiful old abbey decorated with fine wall paintings. The exhibits actually progress with the building’s own development the Baroque architecture room covers the 18th and 19th centuries. Your Gent tour begins here.Located on Gent's inner ring road about 1 km from the city centre.

Stam Gent City Museum, Ghent Reviews

  • Great way to situate yourself with the city of Ghent, both in the physical and historical context. The majority of the signs are in Flemish but there's enough English for visitors to follow the main story. There is a very nice cafe with excellent teas/coffees and tarts/cakes to recharge afterwards.

  • Great interactive museum, so kids will love it as much as adults. There are temporary exhibitions as well, so there's interest all the time. The staff are very friendly, even letting us into a part of the building closed off to visitors simply so we could place a photo we had bought at the flea market. The cafe is very nice, too

  • I love museums, and STAM is great! Housed in a former abbey, you learn a bit about the history of the building as well as the history of the city. If you do not read Dutch, GET THE €3 AUDIOGUIDE! If you do not get the audio guide, you'll miss out on a lot of information. The way the main exhibit is set up has a nice flow, and the artifacts from the middle ages were quite interesting. I went at the end of my trip, so I could appreciate the maps and names of places. Also: they have a small copy of the Mystic Lamb, which was easier to look at than the real one in St. Bavos' cathedral. The outside area is nice, and people were outside studying and taking in the sun. Highly recommended for visitors interested in learning more about Ghent.

  • Very interesting collection! If you don't speak Dutch, get the audio guide, as not every sign is translated into multiple languages.

  • Lived in Ghent for five years before visiting the STAM and still learned a lot. The museum is inside a beautiful building, which by itself already makes a visit worth it. There is a wide variety of exhibited objects and a lot of information to take in. You can skip through it quickly though, but count on a visit of at least 1 hour. After a visit, you can enjoy a drink and some food in the neighbouring STAM café, by 'pain perdu'.
