Historium Brugge - Review

Get ready to experience a multi sensory trip at the Historium Bruges.  A combination of sights sounds and smells enhance the story of a young man, whose life is actually a history lesson in a clever disguise! The entire experience lasts for 35 minutes after which you can have a stroll in the outdoor terrace. This attraction is perfect for children as its interactive, engaging and educational. What better way to retell history than through a real life story?

The experience is much more than just written information and boring signs. It tells the story of a young man and his adventures, set in 1435. Expect a riot of colours and imagery accompanied by sound effects and the works. The experiences make you feel like a part of the story. There’s smoke and darkness as you go from room to room, with headphones in your ears and giant screens recounting the story of the young lad in a blossoming Bruges. As you go to every new room, a new scent will greet your nostrils and a new chapter begins. There are seven themed rooms, each with their own set, music and special effects. All of these add to the feeling of being in a 15th century Bruges, when the city was big and powerful and home to Europe’s most famous artist of the time, Jan Van Eyck. The tour is available in many languages so there’s no need to worry about understanding the spoken bits.

Browse the Historium’s gift shop for some keepsakes, gifts and exquisite artisan chocolates. The view from the terrace at the end of the tour is beautiful. You can treat yourself to some delicious Belgian beer at the Duvelorium while gazing at the horse drawn carriages and Belfry of Bruges. The historium is a perfect place for families with young children, as it’s informative as well as fun! Older visitors will have a good time chilling out on the terrace, beverage in hand and it’s over all an interesting experience, unique to Bruges. This attraction maybe a little pricey for some but worth it’s worth the money if you buy a City Bruges card.

Historium Brugge, Bruges Reviews

  • Wow, this is the best museum I've ever visited. They have made an interactive movie about the history of Bruges with a very authentic sound effects, which is presented in different rooms. This creates a unique atmosphere. Besides, there's a virtual reality room, where you can watch a journey through the medieval Bruges. This is an interesting experience, although I think it isn't really worth the additional 6 euros (adult price without discounts). Still, the main museum showplace is a must see.

  • Great experience through the history of Bruges with a sweet love story. it's a guided tour inside one of those old buildings of the main market. You go through carefully crafted rooms following a story. The rooms take you back to medieval Bruges with items (probably) from that time. In each room you smell, see and hear something particular. I loved the experience. Kudos to the people who created it. I strongly recommend a beer or coffee in the brewery of this place on the first floor. A room that dates back to 14th century with a nice view to the main market!

  • Pretty decent attraction, has a lot of potential but just falls a bit short. Some of the characters are a bit creepy in the walk through but all in all a solid visit. The VR experience is pretty cool but I think with a few upgrades in the future, it could be something really great. Nice panoramic view from the exhibition.

  • Great small museum that is a perfect way to spend an hour or two. Wonderful film that links together some detailed rooms and makes the history of the city come alive

  • I would describe this place as a ride for kids/teenagers not a museum for adults. I’d suggest to better use the time to explore the city and spend the money in chocolate or beer. It has a balcony with a nice view of the market’s façades though. So If you end up here, at least you’ll be able to get some good pictures from the balcony with the market as background.
