Wow what a house! The building itself and the gardens already are spectacular, and so was the inside! Unfortunately, they don't actually have much art by Rubens himself (which they explain in their folder), but they do make up for this with other beautiful paintings...More

Wonderful collection of Rubens' work in a well maintained setting. A little confusing to navigate from area to area. Not much explanation of the man himself, but still very worthwhile

This old house was the home of Rubens, and he did well in his time if you look around the house and garden. The ineterior itself is worth a visit, but you come here for Rubens right? Well there is a lot of of art,...More

This house is well worth a visit. It was Ruben's home. Some wonderful paintings and a beautiful garden.

Beautiful old building, it was a shame that on the day we were there it was closed so we could not see inside.

With the work of Rubens and his colleagues you are taken back into time... all the rooms tell there own stories.. even the garden is beautiful.. I enjoyed every second of this visit

The former house of Antwerps famous painter Peter Pauwel Rubens. You can visit his house, his work place and the gardens. Located in the very center of Antwerp it's a must see for every visitor together with the Plantin and Moretus museum.

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
