Memling Museum (St John's Hospital) - Bruges


St John’s Hospital in Bruges dates back to 15th century, making it one of Europe’s oldest hospital buildings. Today it houses a museum dedicated to Hans Memling. Assembled around the monumental Shrine of St Ursula, a three dimensional painted masterpiece, you will find numerous works by the Bruges painter, as well as his workshop. Hans Memling is one of the most famous of the Flemish primitives, known especially for his doe-eyed virgins and above all for the extraordinary detail of his compositions. You can wander amongst these marvels in the large, open space of the hospital, before going up to admire the hospital’s roof structure, preserved in its 15th century state, or visit the gardens. The museum is a must-see in Bruges!
