The Groeningemuseum is an art museum in the historic heart of Bruges, conveniently located in a historic building. The museum houses an abundance of beautiful works, the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages.
You can see works from Van Eyck, the most famous Belgian painter we ever knew. But there are also works from other Flemish Primitives. Their works were known for their vivid colours, life-like representation and their knowledge and skillset.
Not only are there older pieces, you can also see some more recent works from, for example, René Magritte or Constant Permeke.
The museum’s address is: Drijver 12, Bruges
You can reach the museum by walking around the Church of our Lady, and crossing the smallest bridge in Bruges: the ‘Lovers Bridge’. Or walk past the ‘Rozenkaai’, the most photographed place in Bruges, and continue along the water. You will find the entrance on the left hand side.
The museum is open from Tuesday until Sunday from 9:30 AM until 5 PM.
Entry is 12 EUR for adults, 10 EUR for students and free for kids and teens under 17.
