The museum of design in Ghent

Behind a what seems to be a normal facade in Ghent you can find the museum of modern design.  First you can discover the world and interior of a 18th century family house of a normal Ghent family. In the new wing of the museum you can discover decorations and design peaces of the 20th and 21th century.


The art nouveau collection as an example is one of the most complete ones in Belgium Also the interbellum period is widely covered. Later collections get there inspiration from Belgian and Italian designers. Also very interesting are the temporary exebitions.

You can find the design museum at this address: Jan Breydelstraat 5 , Ghent.
