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. To visit Historium Brugge on your holiday in Bruges, and find out what else Bruges has to offer, use our Bruges.

To expensive for what it is, .. some different rooms , with smells , light and sound, smoke and heat ,... and some other " attrations " more »
Fantastic place that was informative and very enjoyable. A truly sensory experience as you listen, see, touch and smell your way through different rooms in the museum. My boys are 9 and 12 and loved it. So did I!! Very worthwhile
This fantastic attraction tells the story of this 'New York' of northwestern Europe in the 15th century. In a beautiful video story telling setting you learn a lot about the trade and culture of that time. And you enjoy a great view from the balcony. There is a special wheelchair route via elevators, to discover this historic building with quite a few stairs. Recommend this route for all with limited mobility.
