Lovely museum alongside the river. It is a tall building and fortunately it has escalators for climbing the floors. There are photos alongside the escalators. The view of the city from the terrace is fantastic.

Must see in Antwerp. Even if you are not a museum lover, take the time to walk to the top floor (outdoor) and enjoy one of the best views of the city of Antwerp. And if you like art and culture, definitely visit the museum. Lots of nice places also around the museum. Food lover? Try the restaurant 't Zilte... More

Impressive building and nicely curated exhibits. We were there for a catered event, and recall standing for longer than we liked--why can't they provide some seating, especially for evening events.

I like the MAS a lot. It's a very nice museum, showing a lot about the history of Antwerp and religions. Apart from that, they also offer temporary exhibitions that are always worth your while. But if you are into museums or not, the MAS is a must for everyone. You can go all the way up to the top... More

The museum is worth while, but the interesting part is the design of the place. Yoi have free entrance to the rooftop where you have a nice panorama vieuw of the city of Antwerp. This museum is not handicap friendly!!!! For a new museum it's a outrage!

Very good Story telling and they do have a wifi that gets you the explanations of the exhibits in other languages than dutch. Themed exhibits with the architecture playing... More

Very good place to have a good panorama of Antwerp and its harbour, on the top floor of the museum. the museum itself is quiet cheap and is worth being seen.

The MAS – Museum aan de Stroom (Museum on the River) (2011) is the largest museum in Antwerp. The building is unique, the architecture is top class, with the outer walls in red Indian stone with bowed glass windows. The aluminium Antwerp ‘hands’ scattered over the walls give a sparkling effect. If you plan to visit the museums, don’t do... More

Great yet weird looking structure. Bad museum. Concocting ethnographic, folk, maritime museums all in one. Great view from upper floor. Good food.
