Van Eyck from home

Now that the exhibition is unfortunately closed due to the measures taken against COVID-19, we would like to bring the Van Eyck experience to art lovers at home.


Tourism Flanders filmed a guided tour of the exhibition for the series “The Stay At Home Museum”. Till-Holger Borchert, Director Museums Bruges and one of the curators of “Van Eyck. An Optical Revolution”, takes you through the galleries. He reflects on some of the works by the Flemish Master, which are now exceptionally collected in one place.

Listen to the audio guide

The exhibition visit is also accompanied by an extensive audio guide. This tells the story of Jan van Eyck and his time, and highlights a whole series of works of art.

Using the following link you can listen to the stops of the audio guide in their entirety. Each stop is also written out in full text.
