Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Antwerp
(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Housing the collection of Fritz Mayer van den Bergh, Museum Mayer van den Bergh was built by the collector's mother to honor her son's life. Renaissance and Gothic artwork covers almost every wall in the patron's house. These include drawings, sculptures, paintings, and applied art from the 14th to the 16th centuries, a period that was an obsession for the collector. Many pieces are religious in nature, since much of the artwork from these early periods was commissioned by the church. Each room also includes carved wood and marble, as well as grand fireplaces and reliefs on the ceilings that give you a lot of nooks and crannies to explore. Don't miss the three Pieter Bruegel paintings depicting medieval daily life. Purchase tickets for the museum upon arrival. You have the option to purchase a discounted combo ticket that includes visits to the Rubens House, or an Antwerp Card, which gives you access to multiple city museums. Put Museum Mayer van den Bergh into our Antwerp family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Antwerp.

  • Less interesting than Rubens house but only due to the strong focus on collection. Tip: take an audio guide.
  • Beautiful Museum
  • Only the Breughels all make this museum worth a visit.
