Shoehorned into a 17th-century former nunnery-hospital complex, this satisfying 21st-century museum does a very thorough job of explaining Ghent's evolution over 70,000 years of history. A giant satellite image vividly illustrates the vast extent of the docks and you could spend hours clicking between interactive map views of Ghent in different eras. City treaties and treasures are interspersed with choose-your-own film clips and a chance to peer into the future.
