In 1862 priest Theofiel Verbiest founded the missionary congregation of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Virgin. The ambitious task of this congregation was to convert China. Many hundreds of priests, commonly known as the missionaries of Scheut (the part of Anderlecht where their congregation is housed), have since traveled to the East. This charming museum tells their story. There are guided tours that last for about an hour.
