  • .. rather more one for a rainy day. If medieval religious paintings rock your boat then this may be the place for you. If not, probable best to avoid.

  • A truly gorgeous gallery! This museum has a great digital tour, that provides you with plenty of information as well as some audio snippets detailing the artworks. Unfortunately the Hieronymus Bosch panels are currently loaned to another museum, but there's still so much stunning work to see. Don't skip this one, it's very much worth your time.
  • I'm usually not one to go to art museums, it's just not my jam. But of course I needed to make an exception for the Groeninge Museum. And I'm glad I did. I ended up spending almost 3 hours inside and enjoyed every bit of it. Here you will have the chance not only to see amazing art works but also to learn a fair amount of fascinating history.
