Fodor's Review

This natural-history museum shares an ancient abbey with the Kunsthal Sint-Pieters Abdij. Here you'll find "school subjects" on geology, the evolution of life, human biology and reproduction, and a diorama room of indigenous birds. There's an Internet station and a sound-and-light show about Gent and Emperor Charles V, featuring a large-scale model of 17th-century Gent.
