Anyone who wants to try virtual reality will have a wonderful adventure in the Historium. With the VR Experience, City VR and Historium VR, you get to explore medieval Bruges on a virtual tour, as if you were there in person.
With the VR Experience you can go on an unforgettable virtual tour of medieval Bruges, before or after your visit to the Historium attraction. You make this incredible 8-minute trip back through time in the Historium’s virtual reality booths. And while you admire the medieval city, you even get to see and use your hands! Get a real feel for the past. An intense experience!
With its City VR, the Historium also offers an outdoor experience. Armed with a portfolio of historical background information and Google Cardboard glasses (a virtual reality viewer that holds and works with your smartphone), you set off to explore Bruges. You visit six locations that also feature in the attraction and get to see these buildings as they were back in the Golden Age.
The Historium has developed a groundbreaking app that takes the exploration of medieval Bruges to the next level. With the app 'Historium VR: Relive the History of Bruges' (and the necessary high-tech device) you can experience the Golden Age of Bruges from the comfort of your own sofa: you can chat with the medieval inhabitants, practice your archery, go rowing on the canals... The Historium has proved that as far as innovation is concerned it is one of the pioneers of the museum world.
