Immerse yourself in history at Historium Brugge, an experiential museum. An audio guide with a wide selection of languages brings you through the themed areas. The rooms represent different places in the city during different periods in time, from the Middle Ages to the city's golden age. Costumed interpreters, recreated shops, and domestic rooms all introduce you to the city's past. Learn how canals and quays fueled the development of the town, and how the economy generated from the waterways helped craftsmen and artists thrive. Visit a reconstructed old port and the painter Van Eyck in his studio. Some exhibits encourage visitors to interact with the story, while others ask you to enjoy the experience. A beer garden at the end of the tour is a great way to round out your visit.

In the future, she wants to hire more women.
My family loved the place. The story of old Medieval Bruges through a love story of a young apprentice made in a new modern visual technique. You experience smells, and visuals during the tour. We have also experienced Virtual Reality and we had a great laugh.
Really liked the creative approach for the small museum. Smells experience was awesome and very unusual. Was a little bit disappointed how rapidly the movie story ended, I was expecting more adventures from how it started 😅 Overall, I enjoyed it, well done!
