Visited Arentshuis as we received free entry with our Groeningemuseum tickets. The upper floor had works by the British artist Frank Brangwyn and was nice, although relatively small. The lower floor had an exhibition by a modern artist and was complete rubbish. Would not have...More

Nearby the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, is a small museum named Arentshuis. Curious, we paid to explore it. The main attraction was on the ground floor: a beautiful painting about the return of the Christ, or in other words the Apocalypse. Sadly, I couldn't...More

If you know art and artists, this is a must see part of your visit to Brugge. this collection of works by Sir Frank William Brangwyn is beyond expectations. I personally, enjoyed this museum more than i can say...

The Arentshuis is centered on this one fabulous painting by Hieronymus Bosch, 'The Last (or Final) Judgment'. One room gives some background information, the next has the painting. On the upper floor there is a large collection of paintings by Brangwyn. I never heard of...More

I enjoyed seeing the inside of the building, especially on the 1st floor. The entrance fee was part of the Groeninge Museum fee. The art on exhibit was not really to my taste. I do not know how often the exhibits change. I would expect...More

My wife spent a couple of days in Bruges (Brugge). We had purchased a multi-entry ticket, which for Euro 20 per person (regrettably no discount for seniors), turned out to be good value for money and covered a dozen museums and places of interest, including...More

This is a very small gallery and most of the picture being exhibited when we were here were lines. Great if you are into modern art, but a bit boring if you're not.

I really enjoyed my visit on Monday to Arenthuis and was really impressed with the work of Frank Brangwyn, also surprised that I'd never heard of him. I would love to know where 'the chain-makers' was painted. I have tried to get information on the internet but have not been successful. I live in an area of the UK known as 'The Black Country'. At the height of the industrial revolution this area supplied most of the world with chain so I assume that this work was done near to where I live. I took a photograph of the work but it was not a good image because of the light from the windows opposite. Would it be possible to buy a print please? Thank you for a very pleasant visit, I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Ann Lopeman
