The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is closed for renovation until the end of 2018. Consequently the holdings can, for the time being, not be displayed at the familiar building in Antwerp’s Zuid or ‘South’ quarter. Yet the collection remains close by and accessible. Selected highlights can be admired at various host venues in and around Antwerp.
The stately Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp stands proudly in the Zuid district, a distinctive building holding an impressive collection of art. And although the staircase may seem imposing, you are more than welcome to enter and explore the museum’s world-renowned collection.
Paintings by Flemish primitives - Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling - hang side by side with works by Quentin Massys – the founding father of Antwerp’s painting school, Rubens, Sir Anthony Van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens. 19th century artists and modernists are well represented, making the collection a valuable insight into fine art in our time. James Ensor and Rik Wouters, as well as the works of foreign artists such as Titian, Frans Hals, Auguste Rodin and Amedeo Modigliani are on display.
The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is closed for renovation until the end of 2018. Meanwhile, you can still admire art works from the collection at alternative locations: for example in the Cathedral of Our Lady and in the Rockox House.

Antwerp is a vibrant city. And all those residents and visitors who bring so much life to the city also require a lot of parking for their cars. In order to give everyone an equal chance at a parking spot, there is paid parking in many places throughout Antwerp.
Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
