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 about it but I didn’t want to read that. Then we asked to go to the garden and they said it was closed due to wind. That would have been nice to know before traveling there.

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. The garden with its medicinal plants section is also a curiosity. We will visit it again in spring when trees and flowers blossom. The ticket entrance for the House, gardens, and Beguinage (near St Peter and Guido's church ) is only 1,25€. If you love history, nature and beautiful things, rush to Erasmus' house

I agree with the other reviewers that this place was a bit tricky to locate because there is no signage outside to grab your attention. Just go through the brick arch and your there. The inside is wonderful, like stepping back in time. If you are interested in Erasmus you must go. The admission price is extremely low compared with other museums in Brussels. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke English. They lend you a guidebook in English which is extremely helpful. Definitely recommend.

It's a very beautiful house near a church. There is garden with medicinal plants and several rooms where Erasmus lived during his stay in Belgium. I strongly advise you to take a guided tour, unless your are familiar with Erasmus' life and books. The guides are professional. I learned a lot about this Renaissance philosopher, Erasmus.

A lovely day out in Anderlecht -- an hour or so at Erasmus' house, time in the lovely garden (well-labeled herbs, interesting "philosophical garden" with quotes, pools, plants and trees; wonderful objets and furniture in a 16C house. Ticket includes the Beguinage, 200m away beside the church. As well as showing how the beguines ived and displaying a few local historical finds from prehistory onwards, this includes a good historical video about the beguines (a little long but well-made and informative). A lovely. calm, interesting Sunday trip.
