The museum had many interesting and diverse exhibits including some to commemorate WW1. The views of Antwerp from the roof were amazing!

The building is a stunning piece of architecture that is worth seeing if nothing else. There are two reasons to visit the museum - to see the displays, and to use it as an observation deck to view the city. If you visit the museum it is interesting and deals with the culture around Antwerp - but everything is in... More

This is a beautifully designed building and it's a delight travelling through the exhibitions and installations on each floor in order to reach the panoramic view of Antwerp from the top of MAS.

The museum is really well put together, with interesting and innovative exhibits. All of the captions are in Dutch. Many (but not all!) have a QR-code which lets you use a mobile phone to find a translation of the information. This kind-of works, but is rather hit-and miss, to be honest.

Very modern museum. You go up with an escalator and each floor shows a different view of the city. At the top, you have a panoramic view. Beautiful!

My wife and I recently visited the City Antwerp. One of the highlights of a fantastic City is the MAS Museum which is a short walk from the City's Main Square. The Museum is a maritime museum and is a striking building situated in the Docks area of the City. The museum has the most magnificent collection of all things... More

I didn't get a chance to go inside the museum but I did head up to the room where you can get a 360 degrees view of Antwerp for free. This alone made it worth while to walk the 15mins from the central area. The cost of Admission was only EUR 5, and there are clean washrooms in the lobby.

I am a frequent visitor to museums, but MAS is quite different. Going by the stylish architecture of the building, you tend to wonder what exactly does it have in store. Even the interiors of the building have some stunning design. With regards the collection, I particularly enjoyed the beautiful paintings on display, and the supporting ambiance. I do believe...

To be frank, I was attracted by the building but didn't really know what to expect from this museum. They say 'Antwerp in the world and the world in Antwerp' but if you didn't know in advance that you were in Antwerp, you wouldn't have been able to notice it in the museum. There are some links to Antwerp. It's... More
