#1 of 28 in Museums in Bruges
Immerse yourself in history at Historium Brugge, an experiential museum. An audio guide with a wide selection of languages brings you through the themed areas. The rooms represent different places in the city during different periods in time, from the Middle Ages to the city's golden age. Costumed interpreters, recreated shops, and domestic rooms all introduce you to the city's past. Learn how canals and quays fueled the development of the town, and how the economy generated from the waterways helped craftsmen and artists thrive. Visit a reconstructed old port and the painter Van Eyck in his studio. Some exhibits encourage visitors to interact with the story, while others ask you to enjoy the experience. A beer garden at the end of the tour is a great way to round out your visit.

The museum's terrace can enjoy the view of the historic square while drinking beer, perfect!

  • Fantastic. My favourite beer in such a beautiful location ❤️. Was real busy but great service from staff,never much of a wait. Loved it. Definitely will be back 👌
  • A good way to spend an hour or so. The VR was fun and the tour was decent if a little cheesy. Price includes a beer on the balcony with good views of the market square. The price was reasonable for what you get.
