Great museum to go with kids! It's entertaining, interesting and instructive. All of our 4 children (7, 10, 12, 15) had fun in the museum and there were no classic museum situations (such as "don't touch!" Or the like). Boredom never came up and the children later told other people how great it was.

A really great tour on your own, really great :-)

Our voucher has been converted into a ticket. Everyone got an audio guide and we ran into the different rooms in small groups. It was a great idea. Then a tour on your own with vivid pictures and the like. The beer that was included in the price was really tasty, selection from 7-10 different types. Then virtual reality. That was really great :-) a super great trip into the past, staged top class.

Awesome experience through the 15th century

A wonderful love story of Jacob and Anna was told in 1435 and you felt like you were there. A great backdrop was set up in each room. Really great!!! But the best thing was virtual reality. Insanely great experience. You traveled through Bruges in 1435. Simply awesome !!! And in between there was even a delicious cherry beer (included in the ticket price). I was excited. The only downside: there were only printable tickets. If you're traveling by car, that's very bad.
