The GUM - Ghent University Museum

We look forward to seeing you in the GUM! Would you like to book your ticket for the GUM in advance? You can do so below, but it is not mandatory. When making your reservation, choose a day, a starting time and a ticket category. But rest assured, it's not a problem if it's not totally punctual.

You can also visit the GUM in a group or with your school. For this, please have a look here.

You can consult the opening hours here. Please note: the museum is closed on Wednesdays.

The greenhouses of the Botanic Garden

The outdoor garden of the Botanical Garden is freely accessible during opening hours. We do ask you to reserve your free time slot for the greenhouses. The number of people who are allowed to be present in the greenhouses at the same time is limited. This is to ensure that everything runs smoothly and safely.

Are you planning a visit to the greenhouses after your GUM visit? Then count about 1.5 hours for your museum visit. But rest assured, it's not a problem if it's not totally punctual.

Please note: the GUM is cashless. We only accept card payments.
