    Museum Dr. Guislain is gelegen in een prachtig gebouw. Het museum is groter dan wij verwachtten en bevat veel interessante informatie met interessante objecten. De permanente tentoonstelling over de geschiedenis van de psychiatrie oogde wat oud, maar was zeker informatief en daardoor zeker de moeite waard. De tijdelijke tentoonstellingen deden ons wat minder. Het museum is zeker de moeite waard te bezoeken en is gemakkelijk te bereiken met tram 1.
