The specific form of the collection makes it unique within the Flemish museum landscape. The highlights of the Mu.ZEE collection are pieces from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in particular by James Ensor, Léon Spilliaert and Constant Permeke. Recommended!
- The For Freedom Museum shows the bleak times of the Second World War in a dazzling, realistic way. No single inhabitant of the Zwin region and western Zeeland Flanders was spared hardship and repression between 1940 and 1944. This black period in our history forms the main theme of the museum.
