A museum with a difference. Once in the building you are embraced by the rich heritage of this lovely city. A unique building with careful planning, stunning views, good collections, and an inherent understanding of how history has shaped this evolving city. A unique experience with a much better understanding of this gem of a city in Europe.

This intriguing looking building (not my favourite piece of architecture, but curiously not totally out of keeping with the local historical style) houses ten floors of most carefully curated exhibits. The contents change as entire floors are recreated for temporary exhibitions. There is a very good cafe on the ground floor and a two Michelin starred restaurant on the ninth... More

I must say that I expected some stereotype museum - modern art etc. MAS has a bit of that, but there is more. We went to the top floor and walked down - the 8 and 7th floor are exhibition of life and death. Heavy but very well done. It is really story telling targeting audience. One is led from... More

Such a wonderful place with so many photos and stories. There is an escalator and some stairs to go up to the top. Photos are on the wall all the way up - stopping to look on a busy day is not an option with all the amount of people, so go when it is not so busy. The place... More

The rooftop views are great, the immigration and emigration exhibitions too, there is some modern art which leaves me cold, but there is a lot of ethnic and historical art which was really good and well presented. Enjoying a couple of hours is easy in this place.

The building is strange to me. I did not appreciate it at first, but once you are there, it catches you, the structure is from a technical point of view amazing, the roof-top view is definitely worth a visit, and free of charges. The mosaic (the deathface) is a connection with the past well done, non-intrusive art.

Visited the museum. First to the top for a view over the city. Not to be missed. The collection of the museum is diverse, but so beautifully displayed and so interesting, that one has to buy a ticket. On every floor a different feeling and different information corner. Modern furniture and inter active initiative in the end of every floor.... More

The building itself is unique and one of a kind. The location by the sea also increases the feeling that Antwerp is the port city. The collection inside is interesting, however, the most thrilling part is the view from the roof!

Myself , living in the neibourghood of Bruges admit sincerely that MAS is a pearl of all the Museums of Europe , at the same level as Guggenheim in Bilbao. I've visited it several times going upon the top with the amazing view on the river "DE SCHELDE" Every angle is different, it's a continuous discovering from 360 degrees over... More

Went inside the building just to have a view of Antwerp from the roof top. Awesome experience and very beautiful views especially in the night.
