Between 2004 and 2010 they shall all be re-fitted and re-arranged so as to tell Bruges’ history from a different perspective and with a different theme. That way, Bruges Museum aims to become the city’s history museum par excellence. One of the museums is the luxurious city palace Gruuthuse, which welcomes welcomes you royally. Gruuthuse holds all kinds of objects that refer to life between the 15th and the 19th centuries. One of its main assets is the Room of honour with its tapestries, impressing fire-place and richly decorated timber: they all remind of the luxury and wealth of the Lords of Gruuthuse.
