A very interesting museum depicting the life and times of Rubens. Lots of art and period furniture. The pace of the exhibit was very nice as were the gardens. If Rubens is of interest to you, then so will be this museum.

We expected to see more of Ruben's work here. The house itself is interesting to explore. Lots of period furnishings with mostly good signage. As a oldish house, it's worth seeing, but it wasn't worth the price.

I expected a tourist trap but found it a fascinating collection of old masters with superb notes in a printed booklet. Great gardens with monumental loggia and entrance arch. Stunning.

Nice small museum with a garden behind. Some very famous pictures from Rubens and the like. Observe opening hours. Tickets can be obtained opposite the house.

We went to Ruben's House only to find it closed. That was unfortunate due to the fact we were only in Antwerp for one. We did manage to see Ruben's paintings at the Cathedral of Our Lady.

Well laid out displays of Rubens and his associates. It was interesting to learn the details of the house and its restoration. Although the rooms were small, there was never a sense of being crowded or being pressured to "move along."

I would like to know if the renovations are completed at Rubens House, and if not, do you know the date when they will be complete? I visited there one year ago and was disappointed that about half of the house was closed for renovation.. Thank you.

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
Greetings -- Do you have to pay separately for both the museum itself and the Rubens in Private exhibition? Thanks.
