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 15 people per guide because of the corona measures. Wearing a mouth mask is currently mandatory during a guided tour, also in the botanical garden.
In order to process your request smoothly, we ask you to book at least a month 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 email@example.com).
