Museum Van Deinze & De Leiestreek


Museum van Deinze en de Leiestreek (Dutch for 'Museum of Deinze and the Leie region'), also known as mudel, is a museum of fine arts and folklore located in the city of Deinze, Belgium. The permanent exhibition displays exclusively artworks produced by artists who worked or lived in the region from about 1879 to today as well as folkloristic objects.

The museum collection goes back to the objects collected by the Deinze Art and Archaeological Circle, which was founded in 1928. The Circle acquired archaeological objects and documents as well as works of art. At the same time, the city of Deinze had acquired through the years a fairly large collection of works, partly through donations and partly through purchase by the city government out of a budget set aside for the acquisition of artworks.
