“flemish art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

a lovely museum which concentrates on displaying the works of art of Bruges-born or -based artists from the Middle Ages on.
Please indulge yourself in the rooms of the Primitive Flemish artists; their quality of painting is rarely replicated in modern times

“Fantastic Art collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Enjoyed this tremendously. Also part of the multi museum ticket and would be worth it on its own if you do not have time for multiples.

“Visions of hellfire!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

If you are suffering from extreme guilt and fear of eternal damnation, do not go here. Paintings by Heironymous Bosch and his mates of what damnation might be like will scare the hell out of you. Seriously great paintings, well displayed. They also have a cloakroom for your heavy coats.
