Explore his palazzo and studio, pay a visit to his friends and relatives, travel around Europe in the company of this diplomat and discover why his name still resonates well into the 21st century. In the brand-new Rubens Experience Center, uncover the mystery of one of the greatest artists ever, right in his hometown of Antwerp. You are encouraged to explore the physical and mental traces the master painter left, in the Rubens House, in the city and even around the world. The information is offered to you in various layers using different multimedia applications. As a visitor, you peel away layer after layer until you arrived at your preferred, personal level.

The Rubens Experience Center will open in 2020 at the same time as the exhibition 'Designed by Rubens' at the Rubens House. The first stone will be laid in 2019.
