Situated away from the main high street, Rockox House provides further artwork from those found at Rubens House. Considering that Rockox was a lawyer and a friend of Rubens, his house illustrates his love for great artwork and other artistic forms. To expand your artistic leanings, visit Rockox House.

Enter into the 16-17th century interior of the house of the former mayor of Antwerp. Cosy museum still mostly untouched. the various temporary expositions always enrich the permanent collection and are always of te same time frame. A must see !

The Rockox House (a former mayor of Antwerp) is well preserve and is an intimate setting for Flemish Master Paintings. It is a different experience - the painting are displayed as they would have been in the 17th century not in a museum.

A small museum with an excellent collection. Property of a bank. It's the former home of one of Antwerps mayors and art collectors, from the beginning of the seventeenth century.

Located not that far from well-known tourist destinations in Antwerpen, and still largely unknown to wide public and to the guests of Antwerpen. Great albeit small museum. Really highly recommended to everybody who loves old Dutch paintings. The museum currently houses an exhibition of Clara Peeters, an artist from 16th century, with brilliant still life pictures!

Unexpectedly high quality renaissance to baroque exhibits under the most authentic environment. You must visit the on-going special exhibition of rather unknown Clara Peeters still life paitings (2 October 2016).

Small museum located in the former home of city merchant, Nicholas Rockox, friend and patron of Rubens housing a top quality selection of Flemish paintings and artifacts from its own collection and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (currently closed for refurbishment). Everywhere you look, there is something new and beautiful to delight the eye. Despite the high quality of... More

Enjoyed this museum far more than the Rubenshuis,,The art was well displayed and the calm atmosphere enhanced the visit. We used our Antwerp card which I recommend buying
