A great overview of the industrial history of Gent, and a history of technology. The displays of Gent's textile past are especially interesting and varied. 2-3 hours is what you need to do it justice

Want to see thread-making or letterpress production in action? This is the right place. Interesting to kids, adults, and suitably geeky teens, from social history to technological history this is a must visit.

This museum tell you the story of the texiel industry in Ghent; and in extension the hole industralisation on a very plesant way. It's a real famlily place where kids can discover with their own eyes what grandfather told them. Time will fly and after the visit you'll have stuff to talk about.

Good interactive/tactile area, but more of that sort of thing through out the museum for small children would be good

In this museum you can see a lot about the Industrial revolution. All looms and printing presses still operate!
