“NIce Piece of History”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

It is nice to see of of Antwerp's History and Rubens House is a part of it. it is tucked away on a side street from the main shopping street of the MEIR. Once inside the the house is beautiful with great decor of leather walls!!! Some of the rooms are enormous and to add to the greatness is the beautiful garden. It is worth a visit.

“Fabulous and interesting”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a beautiful place. It is well arranged, the labeling is very good, the pieces of art and artifacts are of a high standard. There are a lot of Rubens paintings in the studio at the end of the tour. The house is huge and you would consider someone wealthy who was living in a place this now, so back in the 17th century Rubens was definitely one of the megarich and highly influential politically...how times change!
There is also a beautiful garden which I'd love to see on a hot sunny day!

“Cool architecture and some Art”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I did the Mayer museum + Rubens house for 10 Euros so an ok value. 5 min walk from each other. Some history about Rubens, his apprentices and some art. Nice tour, not incredible.
