This is a small museum and chapel but no less interesting for that. Well worth an hour of your time in Bruges. There's also a comfortable lounge where you can have a welcome sit down and coffee and cake. Very helpful and welcoming staff.

Fascinating history. Learned so much about the history of this region through the story of the family that still owns the Jerusalem church and runs the museum. My favorite part of the trip.

Me and my mum travel to Jerusalem for pilgrims. The travel agent organised our trip and the tour guide was absolutely awesome. Love the country I love the people. GOD bless all.

A stunningly beautiful little chapel in a very interesting little estate in the centre of Bruges. The chapel has it's own very unique style, everywhere you look there is another interesting carving/painting to catch your eye. The alter covered in skulls was one of my...More
