A must see if you visit Bruges. Several centuries of art ranging from Van Eyck to Expressionism. Well laid out with plenty of places to stop, sit and take in some amazing works of art.

Well laid out for walking and viewing. Several benches for sitting and enjoying the paintings . We were there to see a few specific paintings and were not disappointed. Very nice garden setting also.
