Enjoy a magical Christmas in Bruges!

This winter at the Historium you will be able to once again fully enjoy the Christmas atmosphere. Our building will have a light dusting of snow while Christmas trees and festive music will also add to the Christmas feel. Every day during the Christmas holiday period (from Saturday 22 December to Sunday 6 January) we have Winter Nights on which you can discover all of the Historium’s activities about Medieval Bruges until 8 pm.
