About the museum

Two extraordinary tales from the City of Hospitality, woven into an exceptional, singular monument.
That's the Hospital Museum in Geel!

Step into the authentic world of the Old Hospice and the Augustinian Sisters Hospitallers in Geel. You are transported to the 17th century and a beautifully preserved convent.

And that is not all! The Hospice was built on a legendary site. Immerse yourself in the story of Dimpna, the patron saint of mental health. Discover the local and international cult of Saint Dimpna and the origin of the family fostering model so typical of Geel.
