The view from the roof is great, although it is surrounded by glass and have one role to allow you see the view in each direction. The glass used on each floor of the museum f blur, which give me the impression that it is on purpos, to make you go to the last floor to have a view. Great... More

Very odd exhibitions with little continuity. Gave the impression that they were spending all the time trying to be hip rather than putting thought into content. The Exodus exhibition which would have been fascinating if it was in any depth but was mostly on the walls around the escalators. Only the main intro's to each exhibition had English language descriptions... More

Interesting modern architecture enjoyable from inside as well as out. Whilst there we viewed an enlightening exhibition titled Exodus which is the story of the one and a half million Belgians who fled the war in 1914. This exhibition runs until 31 March 2015.

MAS stands for 'Museum aan de Stroom' which loosely translates to 'museum at the waterfront.' Inaugurated in 2011, this is the largest museum in Antwerp (housing 470,000 objects coming from other museums that have since closed, most of which are kept in storage) and has become a visual landmark (together with the cathedral tower) defining Antwerp city view. The building... More

A lot of parts of this new museum are free. From the roof you can see over the river Schelde and over the dockyards and the old city of Antwerp. In the museum you have a view on the reserves of the museum. The rolling stairs give you no excuse: you must see this art monument.

Excellent views from the upper floors, in each floor ( like 5) you discover part of the Belgium's history and its connection with the world . Excelentes vistas desde los pisos superiores, cada piso cuenta una parte de la historia de Bélgica y las diferentes culturas.

The MAS is one of these places you need to visit if you visit Antwerp. Even if you do not enjoy museums you can visit it, and go to the roof (for free) to enjoy the most incredible view of the city. In good weather conditions you can see the whole city and beyond.
