Owner description: Historium Brugge is an experience attraction and the perfect starting point from which to discover Bruges. The historically inspired and experience-oriented set-up of the attraction shows visitors how citizens of Bruges lived during the city's Golden Age. During a 1 hour performance visitors travel back in time and walk through 7 themed rooms where they will be carried away by an exciting love story that illustrates life as it was back in 1435. In a fascinating way both young and old are teached about Bruges' rich history and cultural charm. After visiting the attraction visitors can learn more about the city's medieval past in the interactive exhibition where visitors will be provided with detailed explanations about historical images and artefacts that are a part of the attraction. An interactive quiz acts as an educational and fun-filled way of transferring knowledge.The total duration of a visit is up to about 1,5 hours.After having enjoyed the unique and magnificent view over the town square from the 2nd floor's panoramic terrace, you might as well taste some nice Belgian beers at Duvelorium (Grand Beer Cafe) with covered terrace for another marvellous panoramic view over the Markt. And why not go home with some delicious handmade chocolates from the Chocolaterie?Situated in an authentic historical building in the heart of the city, Historium Brugge is the perfect gateway for a unique visit to Bruges. Historium Brugge is open daily from 10AM - 6PM (tickets until 5PM), Friday from 10AM - 8PM (tickets until 7PM).Start your visit to Bruges here. Historium is your rendezvous with history.

“Fascinating look at the history of Brugues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

An experience with sounds, smells and images paints a fascinating picture of Brugues in the middle ages. We thoroughly enjoyed the 1 hour voyage through the past. One remark: because of the many stairways to climb, the presentation is unsuitable for elderly and handicapped people.

“Different - in a good way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Not a museum but a representation of a painting by Van Eyck told by a protegee. Well staged, good info and intriguing to follow the footsteps from room to room - charming - and do visit the cafe at the end as you can go out onto the balcony for a great view of the Market Place
