This immensely satisfying collection of paintings and small statuary and objects spans medieval primitive Flemish art through the full Renaissance periods.

Do not waste your time going to this museum. Avoid buying a combination ticket when you go to the Rubens House. I have visited several informal, "house" museums that had authentic art displayed in a accessible fashion.

The Museum Mayer van den Bergh is a must see in Antwerp Belgium. It contains paintings from a private collection and they are just so so beautiful

This museum gives an impression of a private collection about 1900. It shows the very high taste of its owner. And you can see some masterpieces: Breughel (2 times, 1 now in restauration); Ssculpture of John; a enamel of the school of Conques (+/- 1120)...More
