Seldom can you visit a site that has been in the same family for hundreds of years. Bit that's the case here with a private chapel (modeled after the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem) and museum in a slightly off-the-beaten path area of...More

Lots of history here. It's seems to be more than just a chapel. Great atmosphere and art work. Another great church in Bruges...

This was the private family chapel of one of Bruges' most powerful commercial families. The story told in the excellent short video is fascinating. The features of this chapel, including a bit of the true cross and Christ's tomb, are wonderful.

If you’re prepared to walk a little out of the main thoroughfares to this place, you’ll find a tranquil and calming little oasis. There’s a film lasting around a quarter of an hour - you can choose an English version amongst other obvious langauge options....More

Somehow out of all beaties of Bruges this one stands alone for me. It's found the path to my heart speaking in a very intimate way. It's an Adornes' family heritage and the virtual bridge to the Holy Land they had intended to build -...More

We wanted to see the church which was interesting. My daughter got bored watching the video which seemed to drag on a bit. Overpriced like everything in bruges but worth a look

A privately owned estate of the Adornes family runs the museum about its founder. Most notable is the church with the skull motifs around the altar. Rather pricey for what you get to see though.

particularly interesting if you have Scottish ancestry as the family history is tied up with Scotland. Not covered by museum pass so we found we had the place nearly to ourselves.
