Het Design Museum Gent

Jan Breydelstraat 5, 9000 Gent, Belgium

If you like your art to have practical purposes, don’t miss Ghent’s lovely Design Museum. Here you will find decorative arts such as furnishings, appliances and dishware from Belgium’s design history. The museum is inside the 18th century Hotel de Coninck, once owned by a wealthy Flemish family. One section of the museum is preserved as it was during this period. A new and modern section of the museum houses functional art from other periods, including Belgium’s most famous design era - the Art Nouveau period.
