“Flemish artists”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

It was a good museum - small enough to visit in an hour and had a good overview of the 16th to 20th century flemish artists.

“Fascinating!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

At first we thought to overlook just the "top 10" items, but the museum is not so big so we took the time to explore almost all of the exhibits. Some of them are iconic.

“An excellent example of Hieronymus Bosch”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

I specifically went here to see Bosch's Last Judgement. If it wasn't for that picture the museum(?) as a whole would be disappointing, especially for 8 Euros.

“Good museum of two great paintings”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

That are The Madonna with Canon van der Paele by Jan van Eyck and The Last Judgement by Hieronymus Bosch. Situated in a beautiful medieval mansion. Mustsee if you are in Bruges.
