7 euros admission helps to keep this place well maintained. Very pleasant mini museum, gallery and chapel. The little tea lounge was cosy too with light refreshments available.

Went to see the chapel and also enjoyed the small museum. Was hoping to see a bit of the historic home, but that is not open to the public.

This chapel never changed during the centuries. Mystique atmosphere and good vibes from the past but with the view on the future. The Scottish lounge is a gem and you can see how the family from Adornes is living here today in Bruges.

Happened upon this place after a visit to the folklore museum down the street. A little expensive as others have written but if 7 or 8 p/p is not a big deal I would recommend it. Relic of Jesus's cross on display. Fascinating family lineage...More

I enjoyed the church but thought entry price was high. Privately owned so I understand there must be costs for upkeep, just wish it had been less expensive.

This places and everything what happened inside made a deep impact on me. First we visited the museum and were impressed by a rich history of the family who owners this domain for 600 years. Then we visited a short concert in the Chapel, conducted...More

This place is off the beaten track, but was a must for me to see. What I didn’t expect was the intense emotion I felt sitting in this quiet small and eerie chapel. I stayed for much longer than I had anticipated and left feeling...More

I was interested to see the chapel, which was inspired by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and to do so had to pay to see the attached museum as well. I didn't feel it was worth the entry fee and wouldn't visit...More

Not open every day because it is privately owed. Situated in a quiet road it’s not so easy to spot but once there, it’s peaceful and intimate. You don’t have to pay unless you go through to the museum.
