Lovely small museum where Ruben actually lived and worked . It is right in the heart of Antwerp and surrounded by many nice cafes and shops.

Wonderful, fully furnished old building, with a gallery downstairs. You can see a lot of things of Rubens, like his bed and chairs, etc.

Hello! As far as I remember, the whole house was accessible (in april of 2016). A bit of advise here: it is expensive and a very crowd attraction. If you want to see the actual paintings, better go to some art museum. If... More
