On 11 July 1302 the Battle of the Golden Spurs was fought on Groeningekouter. Kortrijk 1302 is dedicated to this battle. You can touch coats of mail, swords and maces there, you can see the protagonists of the conflict come back to life and you can follow the course of the battle on a huge scale model.
In addition, the museum provides insight into the causes and consequences of the battle and into the roles played by the parties involved in the conflict. Attention is also paid to seven centuries of imaging of the famous ‘Battle of Kortrijk’.
The building also houses Kortrijk's tourist office.
