So my Friend and I decided to check Rubens house out one day whilst touring Antwerp. We opted to take the tour on our own, and just consume what we saw. It was indeed something to see, i would truly recommend this house tour for...More

A friend told us this is Antwerp’s secret and that he has no idea why it isn’t promoted. It is one of the favorite museums I have ever been to. I began asking locals if they had been and heard the answer “no”. I was...More

It's not often that you get to see the works of an artist as well as those of his contemporaries in the same space. This museum offers its fair share of lesser known Rubens paintings as well as the paintings of his contemporaries.

I definitely would recommend seeing Rubens Huis. We visited in November 2018 and Rubens residence is under restoration. Still a lovely spot and worth the trip.

We love unique museums specially when they are old houses turned museum. The garden itself is worth a visit
