This is a very good attraction and worth visiting. The rooms are quiet small so it may get very crowded at peak times.

This is a must see if you visit Antwerp. Indeed the beautiful building that housed the Rubens household has been restaured with great love and reflects the rich household of those days. Indeed Rubens was not only a master painter but also a diplomat to the Crown. Great paintings of Rubens and his pupils are on display. The garden is very nice to visit on a sunny day and has been recreated on the basis of old prints and a painting showing Rubens, his wife Helena and his son.

beautiful building, but rather two buildings. Interestingly done, shows the entire apartment of Rubens. Beautiful but some not well-kept garden.

Found this attraction on Trip Advisor and fortunately it was close to Hotel Hylitt where we stayed, so the 2 hours free time that we had was well spent visting Reubens House .. Though my personal preference is to call it a Home!
Prolific and Successful Artist Reubens and many of his pupils and contemporary artists' paintings and some sculptures are on display here. A helpful Guidebook in a few languages, including English is available alongwith the ticket price of 8 Euros .. which by the way is value for money! An Audio Guide is for 2 Euros Extra .. invest in it if you are alone and have more hours to appreciate the fine art.
This experience cannot be described in words .. it transports you to a Golden and perhaps Unhurried World where patrons spent fortunes commissioning artworks from their favourite artists.
