5 unusual small museums worth a visit in Bruges

1) Holy Blood Museum

The neo-Gothic Holy Blood Museum (Museum van het Heilig Bloed) has been dramatically redesigned to show off the glittering church treasures. The highlight is a gold and silver shrine made in 1617 by Bruges goldsmith Jan Crabbe to hold the Holy Blood relic. You can also see a 15th-century crown worn by Mary of Burgundy.
