Beautiful region of the Lys-river
Located near the picturesque village of Deurle on the meandering Lys River, the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is an ideal starting point for the exploration of the beautiful Lys region. Special brochures with walking and cycling routes are for sale at the counter of the museum.
Near the MDD, on Gustaaf De Smetlaan 1, you will find the Municipal Museum Gust. De Smet. Gust De Smet (1877-1943) lived in this modest studio apartment from 1935 until his death. (Open from Wednesday to Sunday from 2 to 5pm, admission free).
A little further along the Lys River you will also find the Museum of Deinze and the Leie region in Deinze (9 km from MDD) and the Roger Raveel Museum in Machelen- Zulte (12 km from MDD).
