  • Definitely worth the 12 euros entrance fee and at least 1h of your time. Small but beautiful selection of Flemish paintings from primitive, neoclassical and expressionist periods. Including Bosch, Van Eyck and Magritte.
  • Loved it ! Got to see Van Eyck and Bosches works in person. The audio tour was a great bonus. Really enjoyed learning about the artworks which interested me.
  • Interesting museum with a great collection of primitive Flemish painters. Small, can easily be done in about two hours. A must see in Bruges.
  • Well laid out art museum. The audio guide is good and helps explain the meaning behind pictures. Small fold up seats are available at the entrance for you to use around the gallery.
  • Beautiful and focused collection. Small, but it's quality over quantity.
