We visited because of the Brussels Pass. It was way out of city center and not worth the visit. The writings were not in English which made it hard to know what i was looking at. They gave us a huge book that told us...More
Erasmus spent one year in this house around 1520; the house is now a museum, with lots of paintings, books, and knick-knacks from past times.
