I would like to use here a description of Steven Thielemans, presented during a workshop attended by four city museums in Ghent in 2000: a city museum is a museum about and in the city. It is connected with both the strategy of the city and with its citizens. Of course more can be said about this, but right now I would like to leave it at that.
