Stedelijk Museum

The Municipal Museum is located in the former Saint John's almshouse. The present building constructed in 1555 is one of the few buildings in Ypres not to have been completely destroyed during the First World War.

The Municipal Museum illustrates the age-old history of the city by means of old paintings, prints, maps and original photos. Here one also finds arts collection of the City of Ypres. The jewel in the crown is the extensive collection of works of art by the Ypres female painter Louise De Hem (1866-1922).
