We visited expecting a "bit of a show" and were not disappointed! A story unfolds and draws you in to part fantasy to illuminate the history of this lovely city. There is much also to study at the end of the tour, and a super...More

The Historium is a fun way to learn about the glory days of Bruge -- the 15th century. The VR experience is cool, but I really enjoyed the walkabout to experience one day in the 15th century Bruge.

We came across the Historium Brugge by pure chance while wandering the streets of the city. We heard some strange sounds, as we were loitering outside the entrance, while the man out the front was inviting guests to enter. We had a good look at...More

We enjoyed our visit but expensive for what it is. Only lasted a hour so a little pricey. But a good little story presented well.

A wonderful presentation/tour/film of the early history of Brugge going through each different room with the story. The 3D experience at the end is also great.

The museum is basically the love story of Jan Van Eyck's student in medieval Brugge. It's rather dark and there are interactive rooms with audio-guide. It's too dark for someone who's afraid of closed spaces and dark rooms but the good thing is that you...More

Cloak room at Bruges train station (1 Replies)
Hi, We plan to take a half day break at Bruges on the way to Amsterdam. From Paris, we catch train at 8.55AM and reach Bruges by 12.03PM. We plan to keep our luggage in cloak room, stroll bruges and night leave to Antwerp at 7:30PM. Is there a cloak room available in Bruges train station? How much it will cost? And is the plan too hectic? We just want to stroll Bruges few places in Bruges - Historium brugge, Market square, Belfort, Canal excursion -Rajesh
