Unexpectedly high quality renaissance to baroque exhibits under the most authentic environment. You must visit the on-going special exhibition of rather unknown Clara Peeters still life paitings (2 October 2016).
Small museum located in the former home of city merchant, Nicholas Rockox, friend and patron of Rubens housing a top quality selection of Flemish paintings and artifacts from its own collection and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (currently closed for refurbishment).

Enjoyed this museum far more than the Rubenshuis,,The art was well displayed and the calm atmosphere enhanced the visit. We used our Antwerp card which I recommend buying

Some of the rooms have electronic alarms that go off if you get too close. I accidentally set one off by leaning in, even though my feet were... 更多
It was a very special visit , since the most exquisite pieces of the Royal Museum of art are exposed here for two years. The museum itself is rather small, so the paintings are exposed very close to eachother. Very interesting visit. And entrqnce price of €8,- is rather modest.
