The real life and times of Rubens
Step into the shoes of the leading Baroque artist of his era. Rubens and his family lived in this palatial setting for well over 25 years and it is here that the artist created the lion's share of his work. Here he entertained Europe’s nobility and Royalty and stored his impressive art collection in a beautiful art room. Rubens’ relevance as an Antwerp icon, in the past and present, is obvious when you visit his beautiful house on the Wapper. The charming garden, the creators’ workshop and the fabulous collection draws hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world, year after year.
