GETTING TO THE MUSEUM

public transport
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The Museum of Industry is approximately a 15-minute walk away from Gent-Dampoort railway station. Walk to the end of Dampoortstraat and cross 'Sint-Jorisbrug' bridge. When you have crossed the bridge, turn right. Continue on this path with the river to your right until you reach the museum. Directions can be found here.

At Gent-Dampoort railway station, you can also take bus 3, bus 38 or bus 39 to Steendam bus stop (or Sint-Jacobs bus stop). If you are coming from Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station, you can either take bus 55 or bus 58 to Ottogracht bus stop (or Sint-Jacobs bus stop) or tram 4 to Sluizeken tram stop. Easily calculate your itinerary with the De Lijn route planner.  


P+R car parks
BY CAR TO A PARK AND RIDE SITE

If you want to park your car for the day, you can do so for free at one of the park & ride sites outside the Low Emission Zone. Park & Ride Weba/Decathlon (200 places) is situated closest to the museum and also has a free shuttle service to Bij Sint-Jacobs. If you have a folding bike, it will take you 10 minutes to get to the museum from here.

car parks
BY CAR TO A CAR PARK IN THE CITY CENTRE

The nearest fee-paying car park is Parking Vrijdagmarkt (648 places). Keep in mind that you can enter Ghent only via certain routes. That is why you cannot go from Ottogracht street straight to Beverhoutplein square by car. Plan your itinerary beforehand with one of the digital route planners. In addition, the inner city of Ghent has been a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) since 2020. So please check whether your car is still allowed to enter this zone.

coach
BY COACH

Coaches can let passengers get on or off near the museum, if it does not take longer than necessary, but cannot park there. The nearest car park for coaches is at Gent-Dampoort railway station (24 places). From there it is approximately a 15-minute walk to the museum. Click here for more information.

Keep in mind that coaches and buses have to meet the Low Emission Zone standards as well in the inner city of Ghent.
