Own NEW site 2020

Out of my archive 2014 December

I hope you enjoy of the picture; I took the picture on the terrace second floor from it Historium.

You can see from the picture the marketplace, a place for ice skating falling on Christmas and New Year.
Central is the large illuminated ice rink.
Around it is lined up on one side chalets with all kinds of Christmas items and art small objects. On the other side are your taste buds to the test with multicultural cuisine, of course, mulled wine is not lacking.

Historium lets you see how much Bruges has developed over the centuries but still stayed the same in some way. Beautiful pictures & films and very clear explanations. The props in the museum are perfectly made. Worth a visit!

Historium knows how to portray medieval Bruges in a fascinating way and it also scores highly in terms of museum design. Historium aims to further raise the quality level through the introduction of new technical interventions and trendsetting innovations. The introduction of a new website is another step in the ongoing process of facilitating visits to Historium.
Not only is the navigation of the website very user-friendly and the new functionality very innovative, the design of the site is also more attractive. The style of the new site is colourful, lively and in keeping with the era of 1435. The new website is full of beautiful photos and pictures and aims to bring the charm of medieval Bruges to the visitor in an elegant and user-friendly way. As a preview, the visitor will enjoy a nice animation of what he/she will see in the attraction. You can look at the city of Bruges via an easy-to-understand, downloadable city map. This map links the various theme rooms to the locations which inspired them.
Even the history buff will not be left wanting. The website will provide more information about the history of Bruges and the elements that made Bruges a major power in the 15th century. All this information has been provided by a historical committee.

I hope you like it
