Ruben's house is amazing. It has beautiful architecture, great paintings, history and an attractive garden. The only reason that I don't rate it as 5 star is that there is scaffolding up (Oct 2013) against the archway into the garden, and the paintings have only a number written under them which you have to look up in a booklet to know what you are seeing. Some paintings/sculptures also not referenced..... You appreciate how rich Rubens was, what great taste he had in painting purchase, and how well a wealthy Dutch household lived

This was one of our favorite museums to visit during our trip to Belgium. Amazing collection of artwork, and the house itself is ripe with so much history. We were truly impressed with artwork, the excellent guidebook that was free, and the helpful history we learned from several of the guides. Definitely a must see in Antwerp, even if you are not a Rubens follower.

Rubens turned out to be not only a fabulous painter but a genuine business man as well. Visiting the Rubens House will give you the opportunity to show his workshop/atelier but will also give you an impressions of the wealth accumulated during his life. A very fine urban villa with a great backyard.

This is an Impressive residence with great collection of art within, though not all by Ruben. Highly recommend for art lovers.

bit dubious about visiting this museum but my opinion was soon changed - plenty to see and read (in English helped) now know a lot more about Rubens and his life = lovely house and well maintained
