On Thursday, 26 May (Ascension Day) our museums will be closed in the afternoon.


Flemish research centre


Since 2013, the Flemish research centre, together with the museum library of Musea Brugge, has been housed in the buildings of the Sint-Andreas Institute on the Garenmarkt in Bruges. The centre is accessible by appointment.

The research centre, an initiative of Groeningemuseum (Groeninge Museum), was formed in co-operation with the non-profit agency Vlaamse Kunstcollectie vzw and with subsidies from the Flemish government. This was within the scope of the cultural heritage decree following the recognition of Groeningemuseum as a classified Flemish museum.

The research centre, together with the library, provides a platform for museum staff, researchers, specialists, and other interested parties. Researchers can reserve a workstation in the library for long-term research projects related to Musea Brugge collection items.
