A drink before or after visiting the museum? Or a break during a walk around Ghent? Step into our museum café or find a seat in the lovely courtyard garden. A popular stop for residents of Ghent, a discovery for many passers-by. The courtyard garden also hosts concerts and activities during events like the Gentse Feesten, Patersholfeesten and Museumnight.
The museum café was temporarily closed to counter the spread of the coronavirus and to keep our volunteers and visitors safe. It reopened its doors on Thursday 18 June with the necessary safety measures. Want to have a drink? Then please observe the following measures:
Enjoy your drink at a table…
...and take care of yourself and the others!
On arrival we ask 1 person per group to leave his/her contact details in order to contact everyone if necessary.
