Experience the Golden Age of Bruges
The Historium is a wonderful historical experience attraction, which takes you on a time trip back to the Golden Age. Film-like decors with music and special
effects take you to the era of Jan van Eyck, to a day in 1435, when the Flemish master is working on his painting 'The Virgin and Child with Canon van der Paele'.
The Historium is on the Market Square of Bruges, where the Waterhalle once stood in the Middle Ages. This was the central warehouse for the shipping industry in the
thriving trading city. The location has been reconstructed in the attraction and gives your visit an extra dimension. Using an audio guide you will hear over the
course of one hour everything about the Golden Age of Bruges while walking through the attraction. Then you can explore some medieval themes in the interactive exhibition
or enjoy the beautiful view from the panoramic terrace.
People who want to try out virtual reality are also the right place in the Historium. With the VR Experience you can take an impressive virtual tour through medieval
Bruges. It is an intense experience you feel down to the tips of your toes!
