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).

I am an oil painting lovers so I was so excited to go there and take a look with all the oil paintings. I love that they have the detail guides on most of the art work so you will understand the meaning of the paintings.

Antwerp it blessed with several small art museums with fine collections of early Netherlandish artworks, including the Rockox House (€8) which is open from 10 to 5pm daily. Further, presently the Royal Museum of Fine Art in Antwerp is closed for restorations, meaning many of their works are on temporary display, including quite a few here at the Rockox House,... More
