Very interesting
Sep 2021
Beautiful house filled with beautiful and interesting art and objects. There is a helpful booklet in English but no audio guide. Make sure to view the house from the garden at the end.

A Wonderful House Plus Some Art!
Aug 2021
The main draw here, for me at least, was the house, as opposed to the paintings within, it is a stunning property. Although much altered since, Rubens designed it & lived & worked in it up until his death. It is both quaint & sumptuous, in parts resembling an Italian palazzo. The small garden is also a delight. The art pieces within include some of Rubens own work plus his collection of paintings & sculptures by other artists. Tickets & time slots can be booked online or at the ticket office opposite. Entry is free every last Wednesday of the month but during Covid a book timed slot is still required.

Not just about the art
Jul 2021
The building is gorgeous, as is the garden. There are wonderful artworks, but the building itself (the woodwork!) is a highlight.

Must see when you are in Antwerpen
Oct 2020 • Friends
The Rubens House has long been on my to visit list. I had a day off from work and I decided to book my visit. It was amazing! Such a beautiful building and paintings. A must see if you are in Antwerpen. I loved everything about it. It was very special because we had the entire building to ourselves. The guards in the building were very nice. They were helpful and welcoming. They told us that the museum has a lot of visitors in non Corona times and it was extraordinary that we had it to ourselves. It was so much fun. I would certainly return.

wonderful museum with 17th century art
Sep 2020
I visited the Rubens House mid September 2020. Pieter Paul Rubens was a painting genius in the 16th and 17th century who was also a diplomat. The museum can pretty well be visited within 1,5 hours. The rear part of his house has been constructed in Tuscan style; you have the impression that you visit Italy. Absolutely worth visiting.

Made it to Rubens’ House in Antwerp! I love his work and he painted most of it in this palazzo. Interesting collection in this museum.

Great to see
Feb 2020
So great to go to this beautiful house and see how and where he lived. The gardens are also lovely. We were in February so low season and it was still a little busy so I can imagine in peak periods it would be extremely busy.
TIP - Wednesday is free museum day

Excellent for art history fans and/or to see a stunning residence

Amazing to be able to walk around Reuben's house - it is opulent and has a huge garden. Reuben's life as an artist is intrinsic to the building so is interesting from this perspective, as well as the art on display. If you are just interested in seeing a beautiful town house from the 17th Century, it is worth a visit for this.

Great museum
Feb 2020
My boyfriend and I went to Rubens House with very little expectations concerning the visit and the museum itself. We were very wrong! The staff that sells the tickets were very nice and polite, there are locks to leave your stuff for the period of the time you spend in the museum. Inside the museum, you will be taken through different - magnificent - rooms, full of paintings and sculptures and some furniture that are amawing to look at. As some people mentioned in the comments, the staff that guards each of the rooms can be surprising. We did not have any issues whatsoever but sometimes they were very loud - which in France, specially in a museum would be considered impolite. Maybe the habits in Belgium are different? Anyways, the whole visit took us around 2,5 to three hours. We did not spend much time in the gardens because it was cold and raining but I'll add a couple more minutes to the visit if you come when the sun's out cause I'd bet that spending some time in the gardens must be amazing. About that, some of it has recently gone through an extensive conservation works and we can learn about it towards the end of the visit. Absolutely reccomend it!
