The Arentshuis museum in Bruges

The Arentshuis is a museum right next door to the Groeningemuseum. While the Groeningemuseum is more a museum for paintings, the Arentshuis museum is focusing more on all forms of visual arts.

The building is a 18th century mansion house that is situated next to the waterway Dijver. The waterway the Reie runs under it. A beautiful gate gives entrance to the house and the lush garden.


On the first floor of the building there is a permanent exhibition with works of the british-brugse artist Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956). The very versatile artist not only created paintings and etches but also furniture, carpets and objects. On the ground floor there are temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.


You can find the museum at this address: Dijver 16, Bruges.
