Fun guaranteed for all pupils of all ages !

The Historium is not a boring museum, but a fascinating attraction that takes you on a timetrip to medieval Bruges at the time of Jan van Eyck! A variety of educational programmes are available to help you to make your visit instructive as well as enjoyable. During an excursion in the Historium, in a concept around Jan van Eyck's world that fits in seamlessly with their own world, film, VR, music and special effects transport your pupils back through time and give them an accessible introduction to the history of medieval Bruges and Jan van Eyck.

In 2017, the Historium became a finalist at the Visit Flanders Awards in the category 'Best Family-Friendly Tourist Product': a great recognition of our work to inspire young people with new technology.
