Group visits

All the information you need about visiting the GUM and Botanical Garden with a group
The GUM and Botanical Garden are ideal places to explore with your association, colleagues, friends or family. The various formulas are shown below. It is also a great idea to combine a visit to the GUM and Botanical Garden. Entrance to the Botanical Garden (outside areas and greenhouses) is free. Or how about spending a whole day in Ghent, with a visit to one of Ghent’s other museums?

Group visits without a guide

Would you prefer to visit the GUM yourself in a group, without a guide? If so, we offer a group rate for groups of 9 people or more. Always notify the GUM if you are coming with a group of more than 20 people (email groepen.gum@UGent.be).

Group visits with a GUM or Botanical Garden guide

Of course you can visit the GUM or Botanical Garden in groups as well. We would be happy to organise a guided tour for you! A tour of the GUM takes about 1½ hours. It is best to allow 1½ to 2 hours for a tour of the Botanical Garden and its greenhouses. Discover the highlights of the GUM and see inside a scientist’s mind! Tours are offered in various languages. Feel free to ask about the options available. Our guides are specially trained and speak over 10 languages between them.

Maximum of 9 people per guide because of the corona measures.

In order to process your request smoothly, we ask you to book at least 10 working days in advance. Thanks!

Group visits with an external guide

You can also visit the GUM with an external guide. This is subject to a ‘speaking fee’ of 10 euros.
Always notify the GUM if you are coming with a group (email  groepen.gum@ugent.be).
