Flemish primitives excellent! Totally underwhelmed by black dot on white: shades of grey et.al. We are not into abstract modernism!

This museum has a very good shop there are two one inside and one by the gates

Bruegel art is very good although limited and not as much as Brussel royal art museum

Flemmish primitive painters were a revelation as the quality of the pictures was just stunning. If you have to go to one museum, make it this one.

We enjoyed our visit but it is an art gallery rather than a museum. While the works of art were beautiful and a joy to behold, it was limited to Flemish artists and largely covered a limited range, (about 1400-1500). There was some more modern works but not much of them.

Lovely way to spend time in Bruges. The Memling and the other Flemish primative painters are extraordinary. This is a serious collection.
