Visit the quirky home of a Flemish Artist at the James Ensor Museum
Before James Ensor was an internationally recognized artist, he was an Oostende resident. In fact, he spent most of his life and career working in the house he inherited from his uncle. He maintained the bizarre souvenir shop downstairs and created many of his famous works in the Blue Drawing Room. The house is now a museum, lovingly restored to how it was in Ensor’s day.
For even more insights into the artist’s life in Oostend, you can take the Perfume of Ostend digital walk (available from the Visit Oostende office or as part of the City Pass). The walk also includes a guide to the permanent collection of Mu.ZEE.
