Only wnet because we got a joint ticket with the Rubens Museum but after visiting both, we (4 of us) agreed that this was exceptional value. Great eclectic mix and something for everyone.

Its serene and quiet atmosphere makes it easy to transport one to the Middle Ages as you view its marvelous art collection.You almost expect its original owner to make an appearance.

A wonderful museum with a huge range of works of art all collected by one person, all housed in a fascinating building. The guide book which comes with the entrance ticket gives in depth information on many of the objects.

I've bought a combined ticket for the Rubens house and this museum by chance. Fritz Mayer van den Bergh was passionate about the art. After his death, his mother has the museum built in a Gothic Revival style. The house provides a home for his impressive colection: paintings from the 13th to the 18th century, with works by the Flemish... More

This museum looked quite ordinary on the outside and then you walk in and the house takes you back to the middle ages, I loved it. The collection is beautiful and I especially enjoyed the paintings. Definitely worth a visit.

The museum was built to house Fritz Mayer van den Bergh's large art collection after his premature death in 1901. The building's interior is beautiful and it contains many paintings including a large selection of Breugel.

Located in the city center the museum is placed in the old private house and definitely have a mood. The collection is not that big, but some objects are beautiful. Probably it is overselled in the city guides

The collector Fritz Mayer van den Bergh managed to build a fantastic collection of art and antiques before he died at the sad young age of 43. The house itself is glorious, wonderful tapestries in the staircase, lots of interesting old artworks, and the best of all: A room full of works by the Brueghels and some by Hieronymus Bosch....
