Guided tour of Museum Hof van Busleyden

Welcome to the Museum Hof van Busleyden! Step into this majestic and magnificent Renaissance palace in Mechelen, the capital of the Burgundian Netherlands. Follow in the footsteps of Hiëronymus van Busleyden, Margaret of Austria, Erasmus and Thomas More. Here they met to exchange ideas and reflect on the changing world of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. An era in which everything changed and in which man was considered the centre of the universe. Now, as then, this palace is a meeting place, where new ideas are born and art is collected and displayed. The story is far from finished.
