words cannot describe just how awful this museum is. to call it a kids museum would be an insult to kids. instead of stairs, there was scaffolding everywhere. The coloring in pages had an ink roller to color them in. the exhibits were installed in a kitchen - someone had bought a kitchen sink unit and put pots on the shelves with absolutely no information about them. one of the exhibits was a badly made lego house - another was a cd in a glass box. we asked for our money back.

I didn't look at other reviews before this visit to the Archaeological 'Museum'.
It is a semi interactive exhibit for children and the notes/explanations/display are in Flemish.

The explanation / notes sheet in English was poor and I abandoned it. It is the sort of place I would have taken a Key Stage 3 or key Stage 2 class to visit as a taster or starter for finding out about archaeology.

There are some interesting individual items but not enough to justify the label 'Museum'.

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!!
