We went in initially in search of toilets but went into some of the free exhibitions and then on up to the level 12 panorama. The view was amazing from the top, 360 degrees and had special holes cut into the safety glass so you could put the lens of your camera through. Great view of the cathedral. Really glad... More

Didn't look into any of the expeditions, which were paid entry, but simply walking up through the galleries and looking out over Antwerp was superb, glass walls meaning you can literally see everything. On an extremely wet day this place was a lifesaver, with toilets, benches and a roof, though unfortunately the rooftop viewing closes in bad weather, though the... More

Not cheap, but superb dining in a great setting. Out of this world cooking paired with great and original wines and first class service. Never disappoints.

I enjoyed my time at the Maas. I found the exhibits to be somewhat interesting - some more so than others. The first couple floors bored me, but I enjoyed it more as I moved up. The panoramic views from the top were really impressive.

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!
