The LABORIUM unleashes the unlimited world of virtual reality!
About the Laborium
The LABORIUM is the first Virtual Reality Gaming & Innovation Lab in Bruges and a spin-off of the Historium (most visited attraction of Bruges). In our LABORIUM Virtual Reality Gaming Arcade, you can play VR games alone or in a group. Behind the scenes, LABORIUM Innovation Lab will be developing and testing new VR experiences for the general public and for the Historium.
Are you curious? Come along to the Laborium or contact us, we will be pleased to explain how it works!
what we offer
Plunge headlong into the virtual reality
When visitors arrive, the Laborium team will provide them with full explanations and all the help they need with things such as putting on the headset or using the controllers. A member of the team will also stay in contact with players during the game through a headset. Furthermore, we actively monitor gameplay.
De LABORIUM Virtual Reality Gaming Arcade is open during the summer months between 1 pm and 6 pm. Gaming is also possible by appointment outside of our opening times. Payment is made at the Laborium.
You can find the Laborium on the Market Square in Bruges (in the inner courtyard of the Historium). Address: Markt 1, 8000 Bruges, Belgium
Waiting & relaxing
You can take a break, wait for friends or chat about gaming in our lounge area, where you can also get refreshments. There is space for 16 people, so it is fine to come along with groups of up to 20 people.
Researching the future of VR
Behind the scenes, the LABORIUM Innovation Lab looks for innovative and creative experiences in order to prepare for the future of the Historium. The ultimate aim is to being able to step back in time as realistically as possible. The community we are creating with the Virtual Reality Gaming Arcade will be our sounding board for new developments from the Innovation Lab.
