Rockox House - Review
The house was the dwelling of the mayor of Antwerp in Ruben’s lifetime. It’s basically a museum with an eclectic collection of art and furniture decorated around an interior that exudes style and comfort without being lavish. Despite being right in the middle of Antwerp it’s never crowded. The staff is very friendly and will explain pretty much any question you care to ask. It’s fascinating to look into the lives of the moderately privileged of Antwerp’s old elite.

Rockox House, Antwerp Reviews
Very nice museum. Beautiful interior and great paintings of several artists.
Great to spend some hours enjoying still life paintings, free of you're a KBC client!
Take the tour with the free tablet (iPad) and headphones. It works really well telling you a story in each room you move into. It also provides descriptions for each painting and object (e.g. chest of drawers) in that room. The house and paintings give a great impression of the luxurious life of the Rockoxes.
The admission fee comes with a detailed guide book or an iPad with audio guide. Definitely worth a visit!
This great museum even got better now that the historical house next to it was added to it - it shows the wealth of rich families around 1600
