Loved the Rubenshuis, the atmosphere in the house was fantastic and all the descriptions were in English, too. A very interesting experience. Be prepared for the house to be quite full of other tourists, however.

The house has been reconstructed but is just a backdrop to the pictures, which take centre stage throughout the building. They were well worth seeing particularly as many of them were on loan from private collections, including one from the estate of David Bowie.
