Design Is Fun

Design museum Gent attempts to fulfill three basic functions: acquisition and preservation, academic and educational. In other words, in addition to being an academic and conservation institute, it is also an educational medium.

We want to involve the public in the life of the museum, to help it in the satisfaction of its curiosity, stimulate it into activity of its own and into creativity. The approach taken to achieve this is a thematic one, illustrating one section, one period or one particular discipline at a time.

The educational department will be glad to help you organise your visit to the museum by means of guided tours, worksheets, creative workshops, lectures and so forth. It is also possible, should you request it, to put together a new programme in consultation with this department.
