Art lovers will want to stop in the Groeningemuseum to see works from some of the finest Renaissance and Flemish painters, including the Flemish primitives, over a period of six centuries. Inside, you'll find artwork from Rogier van der Weyden, Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling and Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

Recent travelers said the museum is well laid out and worth a visit. Thanks to its small, but dense size, many reviewers reported setting aside an hour or two to enjoy the works on display. They also recommend spending time in the museum's garden.

Groeningemuseum is located in the center of town, a quick stroll from the Church of Our Lady.

Tickets cost 12 euros (a little more than $13) for adults 26 and older and 10 euros for adults 25 and younger; youths 16 and younger enjoy for free. Visitors with the Musea Brugge card can enter for free. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Musea Brugge website.
