Het Rockoxhuis, Antwerp

10–12 Keizerstraat
Belgium 2000
Tel: 32 3201 9250's insider take:

Nicolaas Rockox was Antwerp's mayor during the Golden Age, when commerce and creativity boomed, and was a personal friend of Rubens (though it sometimes seems every citizen during the 17th century claimed that status). Rockox's restored former home contains his own private collection, fleshed out with works acquired by the bank that now owns and operates the house as a museum. The collection includes works by Rubens (naturally), Van Dyck, Brueghel, Jordaens, Teniers, Massys, and more. Entry is free the last Wednesday of the month.

Closed Monday.
