Archaeology Museum, Brugge

Archaeology Museum, Brugge

The Archeology Museum of Bruges has unique interactive displays that not only show exhibits from excavations around the city but also gives an insight into the working of the science of archeology.

A row of ancient houses in Bruges were converted into the present Archeology Museum. A range of objects dating from the Stone Age to the 21st century are displayed here. The museum is unique and interesting because the reasoning behind the date of each object on display is detailed and visitors can understand how the archeologists came to their conclusions.

The motto of the Bruges Archeological Museum is, ‘Feel the past under your feet.’ Each object is described using a series of do and search tasks. It is divided into four sections, home, work, life and death. Visitors are encouraged to solve archeological mysteries through the interactive exhibits at the museum. Objects displayed include stone, pottery, glass, leather and tapestry found during archeological excavations in the area around the city. A series of murals adorn the walls and tell visitors the tale of the city from the distant past to the recent past.

Operation hours: Tuesday - Sunday: 9:30 am - 12:30 pm; 1:30 pm - 5 pm
