This is a beautiful home and garden right in the center of town. Rubens collected some great paintings and there are some of his own works there as well. He lived very well and the home has been beautifully restored..It takes about an hour to see..Don't miss.

Rubens was not only an artist but also a statesman and politician. His art can be found in museums around the world, his legacy can still be found in the fabric of the Europe we live in today...

A great museum featuring a lot of Rubens paintings as well as other artists. To visit his house walking through rooms where he walked is an amazing experience.

If you like Rubens art then you will want to visit his home and see some of his person stuff plus other aspects of how he lived back then and how he was views by the locals and aristocrats. Interesting history inside this home and as you walk the courtyards outside. A must see

This wonderful place was designed by Rubens, done in Italian style. I adore the amazing gazebo he dedicated to his brainy brother, the sculptural portico, and the contemplative and marvellous garden with benches you can sit at. Even the stair finials are elaborate! The art is spectacular - check out the art cabinets. Exquisite place. You can read the notices... More

A 'highlights' collection of approximately 50 pieces set in the backdrop of Rubens' house. The artwork had me captivated! The house makes a very favourable and enjoyable backdrop however in some instances the lighting/painting placement is not optimal. This should not put you off a visit. An informative booklet is supplied with the modest 8 euro entry fee. This was... More

Fun to see the very well preserved home of a grand master. The structure and windows look like new and the building is clearly hundreds and years old.

The Rubens house is an absolute must in Antwerp! The architecture of the house and the garden are astonishing. The pieces of artworks are also very nice to see! You spend easily 90 minutes in the house!
