CASTLE OF OOIDONK
At the change of the previous century the area around La Lys in the southwest of Ghent attracted several artists. Many painters would bring life to the Lys landscape using brush and paint. Poets could, through the ever changing length of their verses, evoke the meandering river. Also composers were inspired by its beauty.
In one of the Lys' many enchanting curves, between Deinze and Ghent, a surprisingly charming, well-furnished and well-kept 16th century estate is located: 'The Castle of Ooidonk.'. The special appeal of this castle, compared to most others open to the public, is that it is friendly and welcoming, in an excellent state of preservation and still lived-in. It is indeed still a home, as it has been for centuries which makes it a remarkable record of continuity.

STAM presents the story of the city of Ghent on the Bijloke site. A permanent circuit leads visitors along a chronological trail of objects and multimedia which trace the development and growth of Ghent. Temporary exhibitions explore the concept of 'urbanity' from different angles. STAM's real showpiece, its raison d'être, is the city itself. So a visit to the city museum is not complete without a visit to Ghent and environment .
