If you dream to see how the maestro lived, the intimacy of his daily life, his atelier that produced masterpieces that can be found all over the city, you have to visit his house. Even for today standards its marvelously constructed, light flows in naturally and in summer you can enjoy the beautiful small, yet well kept garden!

Not a bad way to kill half and hour. But as the Fine Art Museum is currently closed it is a good second option.

One of the greatest painters in the history. Absolute worth a visit. You will see a lot of beautiful paintings and with the automatic guide, you can hear everything in your own pace.

The Rubens House is a great museum to visit when in Antwerp. The rooms inside the museum are small because they are authentic to when Rubens lived there. The museums hosts numerous works by the master and added some other interesting pieces. Visiting this museum is like stepping into a time machine.

For anyone who heard about Ruben, this place is a must. Rubens built this magnificent house at the age of 33, just one year after his marriage with Isabella Brant! Very interesting fusion of local and Italian renaissance-type buildings.

Spent hours in this house just inspired by the vast array of old masters on view here, some of Rubens best known works. Truly worth every penny and a mus not miss for art lovers.

Even not being an art lover...I enjoyed walking through the house, studio, and garden of this famous Flemish artist. I learned a lot and that is why I take the time to tour places like this!

This place had a lot of really nice artwork in a historic house, and it is one of the main attractions in Antwerp. Construction/renovation limited my enjoyment. For comparison, I enjoyed Rembrandt's house in Amsterdam much more than the Rubens house, but I'm not much on art.
