Owner description: In the lace museum the accent is on contextualising the origins of lace and on some early developments. Displays include the basic techniques and movements, types of lace and their geographical origins, the lace industry then and now and lace teaching in Bruges. The craftsmanship and aesthetics of lace are honoured and, in addition, the contemporary and international appeal of lace is featured. The museum was developed with multimedia and interactive displays. In addition to visiting the museum, you can watch the Kantcentrum's bobbin lacemaking demonstrations in the afternoon. This is included in the ticket price (if you come before 14h you can return with your already bought ticket). All this allows you to experience the fascination of lace in Bruges and far beyond. Price: 5,20: adults 4,20: students 12-26 year, +65 Free: -12 year The building is accessible for wheelchairs. No dogs allowed (except for guidance dogs). We have a special feelbox for the visually impaired.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Wheelchair access

We bought a Brugge City Pass, so we were determined to go as many places as possible to get our money's worth. Brugge is famous for their lace, so this seemed like a good place to go. It was a little out of the way, and it took some doing finding it. We enjoyed getting to sit in a little room where a few old ladies were making the handmade lace at lighting speed. Interesting, but not one of our "must sees".

It seems strange to call this collection of rooms a museum, but it does contain interesting basics about the different kinds of lace and beautiful examples of each. It's worth a look - particularly since it's a combined ticket with the Jeruzalemkerk (a strange little church that you have to see). Don't leave without visiting the museum shop around the corner, 'T Apostelientje, which frankly has more impressive lace examples than the museum.

The linen center is small and really underwhelming but it is a nice walk outside of the tourist zone and located in a fantastic church with a great bell tower view.

So, this was again another comical Bruges "museum", a few samples of lace with commentary in two rooms and they charge an entry fee. A waste. The church next door is worth a visit though!

Finally found the lace centre in Brugge. If you are in a wheelchair or having problems walking then it is not worth the walk to the centre. Tho the day we went it was a lovely day and a nice walk. The museum is very small. Takes three mins to walk around. I have to say if they gave more information on there web site that would help. Between 2-5 they do have a demo session so as we were there at 11am there was no point in hanging around for that. I did notice that alot of people were turning away because of the timing.
