Housed in the low whitewashed houses of the former Shoemakers Guild Almshouse, the Folklore Museum aims to re-create life in Bruges in times gone by. Exhibits depict a primary-school class, cooper's and milliner's workshops, a spice store and a candy store, and everyday household scenes. A new emphasis is on the history of the important regional textile industry. Most refreshing of all is an old inn, De Zwarte Kat (The Black Cat), which has real beer on tap. In summer children and adults can play traditional games in the garden.
