A really good museum with a fantastic view!

It is a bit of a hike out from the main drag of Antwerp, but very much worth it. Most of the museum is free of charge and the view at the top was stunning!

What a cool building and museum. Although on the north side of town, well worth a visit, if only for the views. I was recommended to go here by two locals on two separate occasions and was not disappointed. I sadly arrived after the closing of the museum, but was given a guide about the museum anyhow and was able... More

MAS, a modern structure only 20 minutes' walk from Grote Markt, is well worth a visit. It is free of to go to the viewpoint on the top floor, whilst there are separate exhibitions are most of the floors. These attract a charge.

I should mention that after 5 years of living around the corner of this magnificent museum I have never taken a look at the collection… Which it might be marvelous or not, the main attraction is the view. And it is amazing!

It was not explained to us correctly at the start that we couldn't see all the exhibits unless we paid more. I also think the staff were rude and the building is an eyesore!

It pays to prepare for a truly visit to this stunning but complex museum. I found a good place to start with http://www.mas.be/Museum_MAS_EN --also other languages on that site. Try to go on a nice day. You walk up a sloping walkway spiraling around a central core, exhibition halls located off to left and right. Fascinating permanent collection illustrates the... More

Nice panoramic view of the whole town! Really stunning! The exhibitions -very average.We have expected much more to see. A mix and match of everything,sometimes I wondered why, completely unrelated. Moreover,all explanations next to displayed objects only in Dutch,if you want them in any other language,you have to purchase a booklet.There is a brief description in several languages when you...

In order too understand the magnitude of the city, one should not hesitate when it comes to visiting this museum!Additional side benefit is the view on the city which is available for every person for free.

all sorts of things to see in this excellent museum, even if it's a bit remote from the town centre. Very good "mini" exhibitions in the building outside and a great shop. Nice café too.

We loved the views from the top. Not so sure about the bits that you have to pay for. Found the "Life & Death" floor totally irrelevant to Antwerp. Belongs somewhere else. The port floor was much better. Cafe was good, not too expensive.
