In the garden of this 18th century abode are The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse in bronze by Rik Poot. An interesting group sculture representing famine, death,revolution and plague. A cheery topic but worth seeing.

After I saw expo picasso and salvador dali, I visited Arentshuis. I nearly could die by too much surrealism, Frank Brangwyn helped me. Every one of his works is masterpiece. I am glad to see his paintings.

The Brangwyn collection on the top floor is quite extensive. It contains many paintings and numerous charcoals. While some of the works we found interesting, overall his style is not amongst our favourites.

The temporary exhibit was a modern artist. We did not care for his works. We had hoped the house would be interesting inside, but it was not. Entrance was included in our Brugge Museum Pass.

I only went to this museum because it was combined with the Groeningemuseum, and I had the City Pass. It is a very beautiful building, but a small collection of art work. I spent more time in the park outside the museum, it has some really beautiful sculptures. I much preferred the Groeningemuseum!

I confess that my art knowledge is very limited, and truly I wouldn't be able to identify one painter from another. With this in mind, after a bit of research I opted to see what Frank Brangwyn had to offer. I felt that maybe I might be able to appreciate his work because he worked with lots of different mediums.... More

I must confess we had not known of Frank Brangwyn but went to the Arenthuis with our City Pass which gave us free entry. We were very impressed by the etchings of both Brangwyn and Jules de Bruycker, but somewhat disappointed that there was no jewellery and little else of Brangwyn's apart from his paintings and engravings. A well-laid out... More

Has never been a very succesful exhibition place. Very nice building but needs to get another function that attracts more art-lovers. Very nice situation. Look the the horses of the apocalyps in the park. Look to the 'devil' his horse and his attribute

The Arentshuis is housed in an old mansion and comes on a joint ticket with the Groeninge Museum. Start here and go to the Groeninge second. My wife is the artist in the family but I found the Brangwyn collection interesting.

The large open space on the ground floor is given over to temporary exhibitions, with a permanent showing of Frank Brangwyns work on the upper floor - not an artist we'd heard of before but some very effective pieces that we enjoyed
