Free visit to the STAM for UGent staff
(Jul 12, 2012) All UGent staff can visit the Stadsmuseum Gent (STAM) free-of-charge between 15 July and 15 August 2012. Discover the story of Ghent by simply presenting your staff card.
In the 14th century abbey, the STAM will explain to you exactly what makes Ghent into the city we know, as the town runs through the interactive museum as a recurring theme. The adjacent 17th century convent offers room for temporary exhibitions and other projects. The splendid buildings of the abbey and convent buildings of the Bijloke, where the STAM is accommodated, are places of interest in themselves, and well worth a visit. The abbey, for example, houses unique pre-Eyckian mural paintings in one of the finest medieval refectories in Western Europe.
The STAM is the perfect introduction to Ghent. You will find that the STAM not only reflects the memory of the town, but also the pulse of the contemporary city, and even ventures a glimpse into its future. The STAM then refers you to the city itself - the absolute top exhibit of the Stadsmuseum.
