Memling Museum in Sint-Jan Hospital

The Memling Museum (hol. Memling in Sint-Jan) is located in the centre of Bruges, Belgium, in a building of the medieval St John's Hospital, which once was the city's biggest institution for the sick, the poor, and the needy.

Now serving as the Memling Museum, it houses the collection of furniture, silverware, paintings, and sculptures, altogether giving the clear impression of how the medieval hospital functioned. Among art masterpieces the most renowned items are those by Hans Memling, the most famous of the Flemish Primitives. Six of his works are exhibited in the hospital chapel and four of them were commissioned by the monks running the hospital.
