The outside - gorgeous.architecture, statues, baroque decoration and a wonderful bridge across the tiny lane (Blinde Ezel laan??). Inside - the ground floor feels as if you're walking into a Flemish painting as you cross a large black/white tiled floor to buy a €4 ticket. There are large paintings around, labelled in Flemish and a wall with a diagram and a couple of rescued stone pieces - and that's about it - although there is a wheelchair ramp up to a few more paintings, all doors are marked as Prive . The first time we went, the lift was marked as "Lift defekt" - luckily we were using the Brugge museum pass so we hadn't paid admission as such. Went in a few days later in the wheelchair. The lift is in a smaller hallway off to the right of the room you enter: it's almost hidden and appears to be behind a wooden door, barely labelled but with a lift symbol. SMALL lift. When we got up to the first floor, there's a small museum display in cases, relatively poorly lit, meaning that labels and texts were hard to read. I'd like to have read more about the murder of Count Philip the Good, for example, given that this got privileges for Bruges. Access to one side of the cases was almost blocked by the wheelchair. ramp. The much-vaunted Gothic hall was a bit of a disappointment since it was drastically remodelled and repainted in the 19th century. If you're Flemish, it's important,but hard to understand otherwise, though it did make me realise that Baldwin of Constantiinople was connected with Flanders. The plastic cards gave a good overview, but I could have done with something to explain the mediaeval roof bosses better and to distinguish exactly which ones were original
