The Rockox House in co-operation with the Antwerp Museums
September 2006 saw the Rockox House sign a letter of intent to co-operate with the museums of both the city and province of Antwerp. Together, they represent both quantitatively and qualitatively major force in the municipal, provincial and Flemish museum landscape. They share similar profiles, particularly with respect to museum functions and collections.
All concerned want the museums to take on the dual responsibilities of :
- achieving close co-operation between themselves, and
- stimulating broader co-operation with other museums in the city and towards their provincial heritage.
The Rockox House and the Historic Houses of Flanders
The Historic Houses of Flanders project was started back in February 2006 by Antwerp Museums (city, province and the Rockox House) in collaboration with the Kasteel van Gaasbeek and supported by the Flemish government. The objective is to develop a network of historic houses in Flanders that serves as both an example of, and a motor for a comprehensive and integrated museum and heritage policy.
