Since its origin, The Friends of The Bruges’ City Musea has regularly been intervening in the enrichment of the Bruges’ museums art collection. These purchases – presently some 200 – are made in close concertation with the Directors of the Bruges’ Museums. Once acquired they all are given to the City of Bruges.

As an example, thanks to the financial support of the Friends of The Bruges’ City Musea a “Family Portrait” painted by the Bruges’ neoclassist Kinsoen was officially remitted to the Bruges Museums and the City of Bruges, the latter represented by its Burgomaster. Our Special Sponsors had on that occasion a special preview.
