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. Using our custom trip planner, Antwerp attractions like Museum Mayer van den Bergh can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Museum Mayer van den Bergh Reviews
Difficile da trovare, è difficile da dimenticare, opere fiamminghe di Bruegel il vecchio , e dei migliori del XVII secolo more »Hard to find, it's hard to forget, Flemish works by Bruegel the Old, and the best of the 17th century
Dans cette belle vieille maison la collection exceptionnelle de cet amateur d'art. Notamment des Brueghel de toute beauté more »In this beautiful old house the exceptional collection of this art lover. Notably Beautiful Brueghel
Together with the Ruben's House, the two finest manor houses and private art collections I've seen in Antwerp.
Hidden gem and totally under rated. Love the amazing paintings in this museum. If you love Brugel, there are some of his paintings here. The collection is a personal one and not that large. So it's more worth it getting a combination ticket with Rubenhuis.
