Attraction details
Owner description: Historium Brugge is an experience attraction and the perfect starting point from which to discover Bruges. The historically inspired and experience-oriented set-up of the attraction shows visitors how citizens of Bruges lived during the city's Golden Age. During a 1 hour performance visitors travel back in time and walk through 7 themed rooms where they will be carried away by an exciting love story that illustrates life as it was back in 1435. In a fascinating way both young and old are teached about Bruges' rich history and cultural charm. After visiting the attraction visitors can learn more about the city's medieval past in the interactive exhibition where visitors will be provided with detailed explanations about historical images and artefacts that are a part of the attraction. An interactive quiz acts as an educational and fun-filled way of transferring knowledge.The total duration of a visit is up to about 1,5 hours.After having enjoyed the unique and magnificent view over the town square from the 2nd floor's panoramic terrace, you might as well taste some nice Belgian beers at Duvelorium (Grand Beer Cafe) with covered terrace for another marvellous panoramic view over the Markt. And why not go home with some selected souvenirs from our museum shop?Situated in an authentic historical building in the heart of the city, Historium Brugge is the perfect gateway for a unique visit to Bruges. Historium Brugge is open daily from 10AM - 6PM (tickets until 5PM), Friday from 10AM - 8PM (tickets until 7PM).Start your visit to Bruges here. Historium is your rendezvous with history.

Reviewed February 4, 2014

You must visit this a least once. I know differant taste ect. Would visit a second time if with other people, but unless bits were to change might not visit after that. Very well thought out, slightly differant. If you are not into things like London Dungeons ect maybe not for you. Make your own mind up. I went with my husband and we enjoyed this experiance.
Take in the Duvel bar as well.

“Not value for money.”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Your enjoyment of this 'museum' depends on your taste and interests. The Historium is tourism trap for those that don't know any better. An expensive way to waste 45mins.

“Step into the past!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

This multi sensory extravaganza defies traditional definitions of what a museum can be. A whistle stop tour through medieval Bruges, the 'Historium' offers a romanticised glimpse into a bygone era. The cutting edge simulations articulate a charming narrative whilst evoking the ambience of the time and place.

We were really surprised with this little gem, and it was an excellent way to spend a couple of hours. Some of the projections were startlingly realistic, as well at the detailed set dressings. It was very interesting to see in the later portion of the exhibit some of the technologies and techniques used in the making of the tour.

Finished off with a beerin the wonderfully designed 'Duvelorium', this was a cracking start to our stay. Would recommend to anyone. Atmospheric, evocative and exciting!

“Great experience @ the Historium”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

We bought the ticket combo Historium + Duvelorium. We really enjoyed the Historium, it actually helped to understand a little bit the history of Bruge. After the Historium we tasted a few good Belgium beers that were included in the tickets we bought.

Highly recommended!
Hope to come back soon!
