Gru­uthuse Mu­seum re-opens in Bruges

Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART NEWS -

Af­ter ex­ten­sive restora­tion and ren­o­va­tion, the Gru­uthuse palace and mu­seum re­opened in May. Dis­play­ing ob­jects that were part of life in Bruges be­tween the 15th and 19th cen­turies, the newly ren­o­vated mu­seum tells the story of the three grand ages of Bruges: the palace’s Bur­gun­dian hey­day, the 17th and 18th cen­turies and fi­nally the ‘rein­ven­tion’ of Bruges in the 19th cen­tury neo-Gothic style that is so typ­i­cal of the city to­day. Ren­o­vated over three floors, it in­cludes a mag­nif­i­cent col­lec­tion of its orig­i­nal arte­facts of lace, gold­ware, fur­ni­ture, and ce­ram­ics and there is also a ma­jes­tic new en­trance hall. Its at­tic room also of­fers a great view of the city. For more in­for­ma­tion see: www.vis­it­bruges.be/en
