We were there as part of a conference delegation, and got a quick tour, but we did need more time, as there is a little bit of everything to see here; another one not to be missed when in Antwerp.

This museum is worth a visit just for the beautiful house and the courtyard alone. It's nice to hear the story about this place. You find paintings, furniture, musical instruments, etc. ....

Small enough that you don't lose the will to live. Large enough to be worthwhile. It tells a real story of the art going on in the time of Rubens (and there were others!) plus something of the rich musical life of the period. Wouldn't...More

This museum is in the former homes of painter Snyder and mayor Rockox - who lived side by side. Both were incredibly successful in their time (as you can see by the extravagance of the houses). The works for Frans Snyder are incredibly impressive, and...More

2 old but impressive buildings house this museum. You can walk through it at your own leisure with a sophisticated ipad-app that tells you more about each painting just by pointing at it. It gives you ample opportunity to study the background and details of...More
