This is undoubtedly one of the most interesting and best presented Museums I have ever visited. Focusing upon the life of Rubens and including many of his finest paintings and those of his pupils and contemporaries, by presenting them in a domestic setting (albeit a recreation in parts) they seem to come alive and we spent far more time there...

It was the residence of P. P. Rubens in Antwerp. It shows rooms where Rubens lived and worked. There're paintings in almost every room. Most of them were painted by contemporary artists and collected by Rubens. In the studio there are some of Rubens's own paintings. In one of the rooms, Rubens's self-portrait is on the wall. There are also... More

Fortunately, the friendly staff asked if we came by train. We came by coach run by the German railway and received a 40% discount on the admission fee. So don't forget to show your ticket. The audio guide was well worth it. I usually don't like those things but here it was well worth the €2. There is a cafe... More

We spent some time here to view the paintings. It was well worth doing as the price is reasonable too.

If you love art and want to learn more about the history of Rubens, you will definitely be pleased by the works displayed in the various rooms. For all 'generic' tourists, the Rubens House might just be a tad underwhelming (and overpriced). It's without a doubt a beautiful Flemish house with great architecture and an extensive art collection, but it's... More

The Rubens House is almost magical, you get a very authentic feel. Location is in the center of things surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants so certainly not out of your way. Rubens lived and worked here until his death in 1640. The building was later altered but nevertheless, it is a very worthwhile place to visit. The artworks... More

This is just behind the main shopping street in the centre of the city, the workshop of the artist is particularly interesting.As most museumes in Antwerp, it is free the last Wednesday of the month :-)

Breathtaking paintings and an interesting display. Easy to find and not to crowded. The garden must be fabulous in summer.

The Rubens House is well worth a visit if you're in Antwerp. It is located in the center of Antwerp (near the Meir). The museum is furnished with many original furniture and of course lots of beautiful paintings. There is also a lovely garden at the back.

Being in Antwerp over Christmas we had a few days to get the best experience possible for ourselves and our 10 year old son. We were a bit dubious as to whether he would enjoy it, but once he had his audio guide he became fully immersed by the experience and was still talking about it days later. A beautiful... More
