  • Absolutely fantastic collection of Flemish and Belgium painters. From Van der Eyeck to Marcel Broodthaers. From Flemish primitives to Renaissance and Baroque Masters. 
  • It there about 25 years; the Museum was a few hundred metres from its current location. We left the past collection of Flemish painting in a new site more appropriate with adequate rooms with happiness. Visit; It takes about 2 hours.

  • The best museum in Brugge to see old paitings of great masters. Many tourists overthere, so buy tickets before

  • It's worth visiting for the famous one by Van Eyck and several other early Renaissance paintings. But many other works from later generation were far behind in terms of artistic quality. I found the fine art museum in Ghent much better organized and collected than this one. The museum was using natural light coming from outside, which made the viewing sometimes difficult, which was really unfortunate (even for Van Eyck one, too bad). The people working in the museum watching the guests looked unprofessional since they were not dressed professionally and sometimes they stared at people strangely.
  • impressive collection with some very famous paintings. the most impressive ones are in the first few rooms. each room represents a specific painting style era
  • Good value for money with a range of artists and styles. Entry also gives you access to a neighbouring gallery.
  • Excellent small museum in Brugge. I must see when in Belgium. Great collection of Flemish Renaissance art.
  • Nice range of classic paintings from Brugge's high times
