what? STAM is a heritage forum, a springboard to Ghent's other cultural attractions and a platform for an active heritage policy. 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. who is it for? For everyone who wants to get to know Ghent (better)... For visitors who are spending one or more days in Ghent, STAM provides the ideal cultural/tourist introduction. For those who have been to Ghent before, STAM throws new light on the city. For the people of Ghent, STAM is an open house which invites them to take part in all kinds of heritage activities. where? Ghent city museum is located on the historic Bijloke site. This former hospital site is gradually becoming a veritable campus for education and the arts, a verdant haven of culture close to the city centre. It is home not only to STAM, but also to numerous other cultural and educational organizations.
