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.

The history of the book printing industry comes to life in the house and studio of the Plantin-Moretus printing family.
Eugeen Van Mieghem (1875-1930) was a draughtsman and depicted people in the port; using various techniques he captured their lives and characters. On display in the museum are 150 of his works, as well as works by other by Antwerp artists. Visitors will gain an excellent insight into the world of this very introverted artist, whose work is once again in the spotlight in Belgium and abroad.
The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is closed for renovation. Reopening date still to be determined. 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.
