We really enjoyed our visit to the house of alijn, the museum was really interesting. Some wonderful bits and pieces have survived the many years of human history, it's nice to see that someone has decided to collect and display them. You get a real sense of nostalgia within the many rooms. I would happily re-visit if I were ever... 更多
This small museum is set up to take one through the lives of people living in Belgium from the past century, with subsequent rooms showing what came along during the decades of the 20th century. It was chock full of everyday items from each of those times, but the lack of any English descriptions on the displays made it somewhat... 更多
Really cute museum and something worth doing, nice to look around and see various items from years ago! Cheap entrance ticket for under 25s I think. Also when we went there was a photo booth which was 2 euros for two prints of three shots and this was really cute.
What a good place to visit different rooms going back in time very good how it is done especially when you get to the rooms with all the bits in it that you can remember as a child, Lovely
Thank you Tripadvisor and all you posters. I do not think we would have found this fascinating group of Alms Houses had it not been for the reviews. Very much the type of attraction that appeals to us and as one poster says, parallel to the larger Snowshill Manor in the UK. On arrival we went for a coffee in... 更多
Sited in a number of small converted buildings in central Old Town , this is the place you should not miss. If you are familiar with the N.T. property Snow Hill you will know what to expect - no samurai armour though. It is dedicated to showing family domestic life [ and death] from the mid 1800's to mid 1930's... 更多
This is an interesting approach to a museum. If you don't label things it changes the experience from simply reading and the forgetting the exhibits to one of engagement with the objects to try and work out what they are and the artefacts history. If appropriate to the visitors, this allows for intergenerational exchange. And to top that off with... 更多
Only a two minute walk from our hotel, we stumbled upon the Hose of Alijn almost by mistake. However, it gave a lovely introduction to the social history of Ghent, exploring the local folklore surrounding birth, death, childhood, marriage, health and past times. It's a small Museum, and many of the objects don't have label,s relying instead on the objects... 更多
I love museums, but I just did not get this one at all. It was a hodge podge of different exhibits that really did not make much sense. The most interesting part was the history of the Ghent cycle races.
