Beguinage Museum guided tour

Beguinage Museum

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of yesteryear in the Beguinage of Turnhout. Where dozens of beguines once spent the days of their lives in this oasis of peace. 

A visit to the Beguinage Museum fills all the gaps in your knowledge of the history of the beguines in Turnhout.

The Beguinage recently celebrated the twentieth anniversary of UNESCO’s recognition as a world heritage site. Since May 2018, the redeveloped Beguinage has been accessible again.

The guided tour takes 1.5 hours, as standard. 

How does it work?

Book a guided tour of the Beguinage Museum at least three weeks in advance via Toerisme & UiT. With your reservation, indicate:

  • the desired date
  • the time of the visit
  • the size of your group (maximum 25 people per guide)
  • contact details

The cost per guide is 50 euros, the entrance fee is 3 euros per person (free under 18 years). A one-off administration fee of 5 euros will also be charged.

Toerisme & UiT secures the guide(s) and provides you with a reservation confirmation for the visit. Afterwards you will receive an invoice for the payment of the guide and the administration fee. Then you and your group go to the Taxandria Museum for the guided tour on the agreed day and time. You pay the entrance fee on location.

In case of cancellation, you must inform Toerisme & UiT in writing at least six calendar days in advance. In the case of late cancellations, you pay the total amount and no cancellation restitution is possible.
