This is the best musuem in Antwerp. As part of the ticket you get a very good guidebook which shows each painting with some snippets of information, so you can wander around and actually understand what you are looking at.

The musuem is bright and colorful, Go there

This lovely museum, full of important and beautiful paintings and other works collected by Herr Rockox in the 17th century gives a fascinating glimpse of the intellectual
Life of his time.

With the temporary closure of the Museum of Fine Arts (do not forget to visit the south of Antwerp, because it is booming with fine restaurants and nice art galleries), a lot of paintings are now located in the Rockox House, so do not miss to visit it.

Beautiful building, small enough to avoid weariness. The temporary location for some celebrated works of art during the renovation of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts.

Beautiful collection of paintings, furniture, sculptures and tapestries. The reception staff were very helpful and we were given a comprehensive guide in English with descriptions and pictures of all the artwork on display in the 'Golden Cabinet' exhibition.
