It is interesting to imagine how life was like for the béguines when visiting the building, but the old artefacts on display are not really linked to the place (fir instance there is a double bed which was never there until the place was turned into a museum...) and give an impression of incoherence.
  • Waaw! A very small beguinage, but very well preserved, maintained. In The 13th century it was founded (1252) and 8 Begijnen lived here. These buildings date back to 1634. The French Revolution ended the Begijnhoven. Since 1930 it became a museum. A building was arranged as in the 16th century, the other as in the 18th century. Beautiful.
