This was one of the first things we came across after the Minnewater Lake walking north and it sounded interesting so we thought we'd go in. Entry is 4 Euros. It was relatively small and quick to walk through. It was interesting but it wasn't...More

We visited on our museum pass. Probably more of a place for younger children and school groups to be fair with lots to do and see. Not accessible with loads of steps and trip hazards beware. Not one for the bucket list i'm afraid

I had seen descriptions that this museum explained the skills of an archeologist. Nevertheless, I expected to see some authentic items in a historic city like Brugge. But apart from some old looking pot fragments and tiles I was disappointed. Maybe that the presentation of...More

This is for children. If you are over 5 feet tall then I guess you’ll miss most of it (it has very low windows and displays). If you are shorter and younger (accompanied by parents), you will probably love this.

This museum is part of the museum pass so we decided to visit it. However it is only in Dutch and being English speaking I cannot recommend it we didn't understand it.

We've been all over Europe and find that archaeological museums are usually our favorite. But this museum is anything but that. We had seen everything else we had planned to and having a few hours left of our visit and in the bitter cold we...More

The only good thing was that this was covered on our Museum pass and we didn't purposely pay to go in because it was the worst museum I think I've ever been in. It was ridiculously bad. We just whizzed through it because it was...More
