Historium, a historical experience attraction, takes you back in time to 15th Century medieval Brugge (Bruges). This major tourist attraction is a one hour total experience where decors, film, music and special effects merge into a magical experience that excites your senses.
You will be escorted in your own language using audio guides through the themed rooms. You will be virtually standing in the middle of historical scenes such as the old port or master painter Van Eyck's studio. Step into the past and smell, feel and experience what it was like to live back then. The story that you experience in Historium takes you back to the 15th Century or 1435 to be precise.
You will witness the day when Jacob met the love of his life... The young Jacob works for Jan Van Eyck, the famous painter and in the early morning has to pick up model Anna and parakeet Frederico from the Brugge (Bruges) quays. But not everything goes as planned... You will also be able to enjoy the music by Nicholas Lens specially written for Historium and performed by the Brussels Philharmonic and the Flemish Radio Choir.
