This was Rubens own home and is now a museum displaying some of his paintings as well as other Flemish artists. As a wealthy and renowned artist he could afford this lovely house, now renovated and restored. Not a large collection so doesn't need too long and then you can have coffee or lunch at one of the many cafes and restaurants right nearby.

This is a museum in Ruben's home that is not to be missed. The furnishings and art are really outstanding. You can also tour the studio and garden.

Tomorrow I'm going to visit the house for the umptieth time with my teenagers. This is well worth a visit! Don't miss it, even if Rubens is not your favourite painter. The house is magnificent. And it is right in de middle of the shopping center of Antwerp. So you can continue your shopping afterwards. Or just go sit on the terrace outside the Rubens house for a beer and a bite.

This attraction is always packed with people, so allow time to take in what you're seeing. The tickets come with a little guide book of the main exhibits & this is useful in gaining more specific information. But the general feel of the place and the loveliness of the building and gardens is worth the visit. It is not suitable for those with mobility problems and you can sometimes have a bit of a wait for a seat on the shared benches provided in some rooms.
