The Rubenshuis is one of the "must sees" in Antwerp. It is a museum containing several paintings by the great baroque master but apart from that it is also an original building with a beautiful garden. An oasis of rest & calm in the center of the city.

Although it appears much of the building is the result of restructuring and renovation one gains a reasonable insight into the style in which Rubens and his contemporaries lived. Each room is well set out. Visiting during March 2015 the property was fairly busy, and it is likely that in high season it will be extremely congested, unless that is... More

This museum gives not only an insight into the artistic work of Peter Paul Rubens, but also gives an idea how life was at his time. Nicely prepared house and museum. Dank je well PPR ...

Inside the gorgeous historical building, a large amount of work from Rubens and his co-artists. Beautiful collection of still life paintings! I would only recommend for art lovers and folks who have a real interest. Might be boring for kids.

Enjoyed our visit, but unfortunately a major restoration meant half the building was shut (but the entry fee was also 50% off!). Probably much nicer in Summer too when the garden can be properly appreciated - don't go home without paying a call

Great museum, containing a whole variety of works from Reubens, his students and private collection. A free guide is provided in English, so you can read the details of each painting in depth. My 10 year old loved exploring all the rooms, which were beautifully maintained. A real must for art lovers and a such a reasonable price, you can't... More
