- Wonderful combined visit (under 2 euro) with the house of Eramus 200m away. Very helpful, friendly staff. a film (available in French and English at least) will be a bit long for most but was very interesting (and I stayed to the end) - about the role of the beguinage in allowing women an independent existence in safety, without the patriarchal discipline of the church but with a commitment to a life of meditation and helping others (the beguines were the first organised nurses). Some say it wasn't just because the men all died in crusades, it was a way for women to live independently, usefully and safely. Seeing the tiny rooms, I can imagine 8 lived here more comfortably than many poor people would have done. There is a little museum of local items and a few gems. Don't miss the sweetshop.Written 9 July 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- My twin brother Stephen and I were in the Anderlecht District were we had just had a great time in Cantillon Brewery ( brewery tour and beer sampling ) and L'Ermitage Nanobrasserie ( great brewpub ) ,we then headed to Place De L'Aviation were we visited three great cafe bars on this square were we enjoyed some classic Belgium beers ,on the square is this statue which is beautiful .
Monument Aux Forains is a great statue ,dedicated to the showmen who perished in the first world war,unveiled in 1924,the work of sculptor's Victor Voets and Herman Voets ,the monument commemorates the 28 showmen who died defending Belgium ,30 other names were added after World War Two ,over the years the statue fell into disrepair and in 2003 was restored ,this statue was then placed in a safe environment and replaced with this exact copy which looks amazing ,so well detailed ,definitely well worth checking out if you're on Place De L'Aviation.Written 22 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This modest museum is situated in the suburbs of brussels near Clemenceau metro station.it has a very unprepossessing exterior with a sign on hoardings.I arrived at the same time as one of the curators.I was admitted for free.the lights were turned on and there like Aladdin cave were all these artefacts from the war and wall to wall displays..I would warn that there is no English translation.I still found it very interesting,though this meant that I only stayed for half an hour.the last visitor signed the visitors book a week ago.if you are interested in the subject matter you should make the effort to visit.Written 26 March 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Go to St. Guidon tram/metro stop in Anderlecht. After visiting the Maison d'Erasme (Erasmus House), cross the street to the Maurice Carem complex. Be sure to visit the two houses of the Béguinage, where from medieval times to the 19th century, single, orphaned, or widowed women led a communal life protected from the ravages of a hostile society. Beautifully-preserved in a quiet urban garden.Written 18 September 2016
- I couldn’t go a trip to Brussels without a visit to the home of RSC Anderlecht, and while it was t without incident getting there (I missed my bus stop) I came to find one of my favourite away days.
Now first things first, before attending I emailed to enquire if I could buy a ticket at the gate, and was not so much encouraged but implored to order online for fear of selling out, which was a nonsense, as the game in question, against Royal Excel Mouscron, was nowhere near selling out. This shouldn’t be a big thing, but it did deprive me of a ticket stub, having an awful printout ticket.
This would, in a roundabout way, provide my favourite aspect of things though, as this didn’t work at the gate. Now, having attended games in 10+ countries I’ve met stewards of varying degrees of hostility and disinterest. The gent here was fantastic, first trying to get me a proper ticket printed and when the ticket office wouldn’t follow checked all my ID well before letting me in.
The stadium is compact but nice, with standing sections behind the goals. It’s very well maintained and feels newer than it is. I’ll be honest I never ate inside, but did have a few Jupiter lagers, but did have an excellent hot dog outside. Speaking of outside, the stadium is in the midst of an abnormally nice housing estate, but has a few nice little bars that i imagine only open on matchdays. There’s also a very well stocked club store on the premises.
Truth be told the only downside was that I listened to bad advice on how to get there - there’s a metro station a short walk away that I’d advise using. Apart from that good facilities, good surroundings and a cracking stadium I’d heartily recommendWritten 10 September 2021
