Hôtel de Busleyden museum

Interesting
This brick palace with a turret, standing at the end of an arcaded courtyard, was built for Hieronymus van Busleyden, judge at the Great Council of Mechelen and founder of the Collegium Trilingue in Leuven. Situated around an attractively modernised courtyard, the different buildings have, since 2018, housed an interesting museum dedicated to the Burgundian Netherlands' golden age, with information on the town, its corporations, war, power and the Beguine convents.
