Surprise your children with an educational and fun visit to a hospital founded in 1242, listed as a Belgian World Heritage Site.


New programme of activities for families

Afternoons with your family (1 March, 29 April, 26 October and 16 November), a new scheme, where you will be guided by a religious excentric and a doctor, who is a tad too serious. Your children will discover more and surprises as the visit goes on. Bring your children to discover what life was really like in a 17th century hospital!

Full programme available on the website www.notredamealarose.com (in French only)


Children from 3 to 6 years old


As part of "Afternoons with your family" scheme, your children will love trying out professions from the Middle Ages and centuries following, such as musician, narrator, doctor, alchemist, surgeon, apothecary, sorcerer or even an archer! Various professions are available in accordance with specific dates.

Children 6 to 12 years old

As part of "Afternoons with your family" scheme, they will love fun, themed activities, such as gastronomy, shows, history, fancy dress, games, heritage discoveries, Easter egg hunts, and even some Halloween activities to make you shiver.
