Small museum with high quality art

The Groeininge specializes in Medieval art, though it's pictures span several centuries. The collection is well curated. It's a small, pleasant museum.

The Bosch triptych was out on exhibit in the Netherlands (until August we were told) and we were disappointed to miss it. The Groeninge is otherwise a terrific museum for Flemish painting. Do not miss it despite missing the Bosch for viewing.

I very much appreciated the way the art of Bruges was displayed by century so that walking through the museum was taking a trip through art history in Bruges. Wonderful works of art. We enjoyed it very much

We saw an exhibition of an artist Frank Brangwyn, who was born in Bruges, but spent most of his life in the UK. A fascinating story and great paintings,well displayed. I really enjoyed it. There was plenty of information, but it wasn't obtrusive.

Great display and interactive options, rather enjoyed a beer in the bar that sits on the balcony of the building - where you can watch the world go by whilst sampling from the beer board :)

If you're not sure what a Flemish Primitive is, you could visit this museum and find out in a few short minutes. Great stuff, until you get to the modern art, which is good for a laugh I guess.

The best part of the whole trip was this museum. Absolutely beautiful. Not big however the treasure it has make up for that. Van Eyck, Bosch and much more. Please make this a stop on your trip to Brugge if you love art as I do. The museum shop also has great gifts to buy that are small and easy... More

Take advantage of a first-rate art museum and get an up-close look at some really fine Flemish art. I was not aware of just how influential Bruges have been to art over the centuries. This is an excellent art museum that deserves more recognition than it gets. When in Bruges, be sure to spend a couple of hours in the... More

If you have any desire to see art, don't miss the Groeninge Museum. It has a wonderful collection of mostly Belgian art through the centuries and goes way back in time. The collection gives you a feel for the nature of life in Belgium through the centuries. It is possible to see the entire museum in about an hour. It... More
