The beguinage of Tongeren is big, you can easily stroll around for about an hour. The signs with information are good, but if you want to know even more about how life once was, you can visit the museum.
I really loved the tavern in the basement of this old house. In the attic they show a video of different beguinages in Belgium. You can also make reservations for a guided tour.
For me, to learn about the former dwellers of this house was most interesting, but there's also overall information about beguinages and the history of this beguinage in particular.
