Lacemaking museum opens in Bruges

Learn the history of lacemaking is at a new museum just opened in Bruges. The industry took off there in the 16th century and soon began to play an enormously important role in the culture and economics of the Belgian city. In the 19th century, religious groups also started teaching the skill. The museum is housed in one of the former schools they founded – that of the Apostollinnen sisters on Balstraat 16.
