The Historium is bringing even more experiences and activities for children and families
We are also pleased to welcome families and children with the multilingual Family Trail. After a visit to the Historium Story you enter the Historium Exhibition where you also find the Family Trail, a light-hearted name for the most child-friendly elements, so our youngest visitors can also feel right at home.
A trail that appeals specifically to children
Alongside the information we provide, we also have various activities in the Historium that emphasise the fun factor. These activities are labelled with the fun ‘kidsproof’ stickers and stand out immediately. This little owl is the fun mascot that shows children around and points out the things they will find most interesting. He acts as a guide during the visit, with various games that form part of an exciting quest.
Even more experiences with play elements
In addition, people of all ages can touch and smell the containers to discover which products and smells belong to the Middle Ages and which do not. The surrounding area of the Historium, Bruges’ splendid historical market square, is also part of the quest.
You don’t have to do anything, but you are warmly recommended to have fun
The Family Trail leads you around in a fun manner, but it is not a rigid trail that you have to follow. There is nothing competitive or stressful about it. You can also follow it back to front, or just follow part of it, if you find this more enjoyable. The aim is that families will experience the Historium and the history of Bruges in the most active manner possible.
Families are given an information sheet explaining the trail with the audio guides. This information sheet is only there to help orient you and you do not have to hand it in. After all, it is not a competition. To show that anyone who visits the Historium with their family is already a winner, children are given a fun badge when they arrive.
