This small museum is absolutely beautiful. One is given an iPad which has photos as well as detailed description of all the artworks. It is so informative. I learned a lot about the artworks and the styles.

A wonderful reconstruction of a wealthy citizen's house in 17th century Antwerp, furnished with taste and discrimination with some fine Rubens paintings. Not to be missed.

Who knew? Such an interesting place. Very, very friendly staff. Adapted to current technology with musical scores displaying note-by-note as the period music is playing. Really wonderful. Do not miss this.
