    A modern experience in a historic building. Lots of choice at the bar . Five beers for €10 ! Friendly efficient service. Great atmosphere here. Suitable for young and old. Decent on site shop. Worth a visit.

    This is a short museum with interesting yet gruesome facts about the judicial system through history. The facts and displays were clear and engaging. However I did start to feel a bit queasy towards the end.

    We did not have much time and just popped in Historium Brugge.
    It is a very interesting place especially if you are with kids!

    Cool that they have so much historic items from the Mayas and Aztecs.

    But I think they should have more interaction with the process of making it, like Ghirardelli, and its more about Cocoa than other thing!

    There’s only so much you can expect from a museum of fries. What was putting off though was the smell of the oil they were using to cook the fries down in the basement. It made us all feel sick! We went to grab some fries anyway (still have to pay for them), and they were average at best. We expected the perfect fries seeing as they knew exactly how to do it…

    This may not be the most popular tourist attraction in Bruges, but one will learn everything about lace making. Besides the information downstairs, best part for me is the demonstration room upstairs where locals (men and women) make bobbin style laces. I had to take a video to show folks at home how fast their fingers are moving those bobbins. No wonder real hand made lace are so expensive!

    There's so many stunning items of religious art packed into this unassuming building. The church itself is also heavily decorated and absolutely gorgeous. Definitely recommend strolling along the canal to get to this church, it's really worth it!

    The site of the old hospital of the town on Bruges had to get a new destination, and as a result large chunks of the complex were destined to become a museum. There is a permanent collection with work of Picasso (wroth visiting) and of Miro (less impressive). Next to that, there are temporary exhibitions. At the time of writing, there is one with scale models of the designs from Leonardo da Vinci - but, unfortunately, to be honest, I wasn't really impressed with that exhibition;

    The history of illumination throughout human history, from the first tools to light fire, through a variety of gas and oil lamps, all the way to modern LED lights. (Though the newer exhibits are almost 10 years old, the collection definitely focuses on older items)
    There's a few video presentations throughout that give a bit of an understanding of the different methods of lighting.
    Hundreds of candelabras, lamps, a huge variety of bulbs, there's so much to see here!

    Gezelle is a Flemish poet but there were translations of his poetry, which was lovely. There is also a garden there, which was very peaceful. When we went it was on a Sunday and there were some volunteers restoring the garden. They were lovely and so friendly and took time to explain what they were doing and telling us about the plants and their plans for the garden.
