From the name and the pottery outside the museum you get the impression this might be an interesting museum (if you are into archeology) HOWEVER...this is a kids museum about archeology NOT a museum with archeological finds. Even as a kids museum it wasn't very nice- most everything was either broken or dirty.

Best to give this a miss, waste of money and time
I am sure British Health And Safety would have a field day and
you can learn more about archeology watching Time Team.
This is a fantastic city with history galore and you will learn absolutely nothing from a visit to this museum

I do not know why they call this an archaeological museum. It is a total misnomer. It's a children's "show and tell", hands on, dress up museum.

Thankfully, it was included in our Brugge Museum pass and we did not have to pay an additional fee. It was quite disappointing. It was like a maze and we had a hard time finding the exit - which we were in a hurry to locate!!

It has to be said that in the 3 days we had in Bruges we did very little. It was a dry April weekend and it is such a pleasant place to just wander around, take in the sights of the houses, canals, churches and markets, antique shops that you do not feel obliged to do anything else. That we wasted time and 8 euros on this museum was the only negative activity in the whole trip. It did have a bathroom so wasn't a complete loss but that was the high point!
(this review does make me wonder what we would have to experience to rate anything as one star - possibly the bathroom being out of order!)

I love this museum. The quirky style makes it feel like you are actually on an excavation. The timeline which threads it's way through the museum is a simple but clever touch. There are lots of hands-on things for kids (and adults).

We bought the combined ticket that provides entry to all of the Bruges Museums and it is well worth the money.
