If you like modern art....

This is a very small gallery and most of the picture being exhibited when we were here were lines. Great if you are into modern art, but a bit boring if you're not.

My wife spent a couple of days in Bruges (Brugge). We had purchased a multi-entry ticket, which for Euro 20 per person (regrettably no discount for seniors), turned out to be good value for money and covered a dozen museums and places of interest, including the Arentshuis art museum. It is a beautiful 18th Century building, with the ground floor... More

I have always loved posters. They generally exaggerate life to sell, or advertise, something Here we viewed around 1700 Steinmetzkabinet posters of them from a collection of Groeninge (a temporary exhibit). Also, there is works by graphic artist and painter Frank Brangwyn as well as pieces by many other artists I think that this may be the best art museum... More

This museum is covered by the Bruges museum pass. It is very close to the Groeningemuseum so you can do the two museums at the same time The first floor contains sketches from the same collector as at the Groeningemuseum The second floor contains the Frank Brangwyn which my friend really liked. There were sketches, paintings, and furniture included in... More

Just two small floors here - the 1st floor houses a lot of Frank Brangwyn's work, the ground floor is given over to a temporary exhibit of prints acquired from a local collector. I enjoyed both. Only took me about half an hour, an enthusiast might take longer of course!

Opening hours are 9.30am to 5pm daily. Here you will find two floors of artworks. The second floor is made up of the Brangwyn collection, which includes pieces... More

We visited when we were in Bruges and so glad we did. It The ground floor was a wonderful collection of old prints, but the first floor was dedicated to an British artist called Frank Brangwyn, who was born in Bruges. A contemporary and friend of William Morris, he was not only a brilliant artist, but also designed furniture, ceramics,... More

the work of Frank Brangwyn was not known to us but what an extraordinary artist. the drawings are wonderful and a great discovery - really added to the experience of bruges - if not exactly in keeping with the historic environment

This museum always has interesting collections going on. The building itself is quite dull and could use some renovations. The staircase up however is quite impressive!

This is a must for fans of Frank Brangwyn who, do not include me. The images on display - some of them woodcuts, others lithographs - are dark, foreboding and apocalyptic: Christ on the cross, workers broken by the burden of their life and loads, and so on. The exceptions are a beautiful woven mural and some examples of his... More
