Visit the restored beguinage


The restoration of the smallest beguinage in Belgium was completed in 2022. Before its brand-new museum project is inaugurated in autumn 2024, the Anderlecht beguinage is opening its doors to the public for a few events. These exceptional opening days will enable everyone to discover this entirely restored architectural jewel in a pristine state before its reallocation as a museum space.
Upon the occasion of its re-opening, accompanied by guided tours, you will be able to discover the work done to restore its original appearance to this extraordinary heritage site unique in Europe.
