The church was a nice little place. We went to visit the lace museum (a big disappointment) but the church made this a better use of time.

The church and the lace museum next door was a combined ticket. Small and cosy church but the main attraction for me was the lace museum which was disappointing as displays of lace go especially as this is a big lace community. I expected a better display like the one in Honiton in UK which has some outstanding displays and much bigger. Why isn't Brugge promoting its lace heritage?

Went into the Church as we were passing, but I was really stunned by the interior, which is small and almost cosy, despite the macabre carving on one wall depicting skulls, ladders and various building tools. There's a lovely old church organ, and a beautifully carved pulpit, which seems to be floating with no clear means of access. Hope the Church's 15th century patrons Anselmus and his wife Margaretha managed to get a ticket to heaven, as they've left a quirky, fascinating place for visitors to enjoy today.

The only reason I visited the Jerusalem Church was because this was the church used in the film, portrayed as the Basilica of the Holy Blood because the Basilica would not let them film.

Nice church, but for me it was like walking into the film set.

Oddly includes entry to a lace museum out the back.

€3 pp.

Despite being a relatively small church, the architecture and decoration does not fail to impress. The contrast between traditional imagery and symbolism and strange (and to some extent morbid) features makes a lasting impression. This church is as much, if not more mesmerizing and thought provoking than any of the numerous larger churches in Bruges. The only down side is that there wasn't any information to read.
