Livemuziek@Alijn: Roel Van Bambost Duo
Free concert in the museum attic, organized by the Friends of Alijn: the very best of sweet sixties and seventies folk.
Thursday 29.12, 9 pm
Lights out. Puppets on
What typifies puppet and figure theater? How does a performance come about? And what makes this heritage so valuable? A temporary exhibition with a special collection of theater puppets.
On Thursday 5 January, the museum and museum café will be open until 10pm.
Museum of daily life
Touch a coffee grinder and hear the beans being ground, smell the laundry detergent of yesteryear, do a dance in the wedding room, draw your own lucky charm or read an old New Year's letter.
In the main exhibition, you can discover more about the rituals, customs and traditions of everyday life from the 20th century to today.
The Sound game
Grease your vocal chords and warm up your muscles because the sound game is a walk for active families in the historic centre of Ghent.
The museum café
A drink before or after your museum visit? Or a break during a visit to Ghent? The volunteers of the museum café are happy to serve you.
