“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

There was a lot to see here and lots of information on it - a selection of medical and religious artefacts. Nice building. We also went to the apothecary, which is small, but worth a visit if you're nearby when it's open. We had Bruges City Cards, but would say this is probably a must if you're into museums.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

Fascinating museum, in a centuries hold hospital building which only closed as a hospital in the 1970s. Paintings and ephemera tell the story of the hospital and some beautiful artworks.

“This used to be a hospital”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015

It's across from the Our Lady Church and now houses a museum of old hospital equipment and art work. We really enjoyed seeing the items here and wandering through because we had a pass. I would never pay extra for this museum if we hadnt gotten in free with the Brugge pass we purchased.

We were blown away by the museum and preservation that was done. There was also the Picasso Exhibition that was on display

“Beautifully preserved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

During the Middle Ages people did not expect to recover when they went to the hospital so this building was designed to get people right with God before their impending death. Artwork is amazing.
