Peter Benoit MuseumPrint
Peter Benoit was born into a modest household in Harelbeke in 1834. When he died in 1901, he was a celebrated composer with international appeal.
At the Peter Benoit Museum you learn all about Benoit's life and work from five women who were close to him. Sound showers immerse you in his music, and a film sheds light on the composer's international significance. Finally, a visit to his birth house shows you the circumstances poor Flemish families lived in two centuries ago.
