Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Antwerp

4.5
#5 of 21 in Museums in Antwerp
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Coupled ticket, at a very affordable price, with the Rubens House. It is also a House, that of a great collector but no languages other than Dutch, even if a small booklet in French is distributed at the entrance. So we're a little lost and that's a shame because the collection is great!
