Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus was a Dutch Renaissance humanist priest of cAtholic faith who angered both his own church and Reformation members by preaching a middle path between the two philosophies. He would go on to become one of the most influential philosophers after his death. He stayed in this residence in the 16th century.

While the focus of the museum is on the monk, there are also material related to his times, mostly paintings, but also books, the origins of printing, and philosophical gardens. There are two other gardens on the grounds - a medicinal garden and a second philosophical garden.

Belgium’s smallest Beguinage, of the extant Anderlecht Commune, was formed in the 12th century. The museum of the Beguinage building focuses on Anderlecht history, archaeological artefacts, and religious art.
