Best tip ever - given by the Antwerp tourist office - go to the top of this place at sunset - it's ten or more floors up but there are escalators - and watch the sun go down on Antwerp - it is truly breathtaking. Sadly there's no refreshments up there so it's all the way down to the bottom... More

The museum offered an insight in the history of Antwerp, there exhibits from the distant and the not so distant past. Watch out for Tin Tin

This museum is organized by vague "themes," as if it were some kind of anthropological catalogue. While there are many artifacts, the museum seems somehow to lack actual content. A big part of the experience of the MAS is using the app to get descriptions of what you are looking at; frankly, you might as well stay home and surf... More

Don't miss this 10 storey museum beside the River Scheltde. The views of Antwerp from the top are very good and most floors have different exhibitions.

This is a must visit as it houses a wonderful display on each floor and in particular showcases the history of Antwerp.Both Art and historical features are showcased. Very moving photos of WW1 on each floor as you use the escalators. Make sure you go to the top 10th floor for the amazing 360 degree vista. Work your way down!

It is worth a visit just to see this extraordinary building. The trip to the roof is free and the total surround view is awesome. The haunting photos of WWI victims will pull at the coldest heartstrings.

We were disappointed at this museum there were some stunning stories to be told about the city but the best displays were alongside the escalators.We were disappointed at the displays that were there.

I would say it is a must see building, as the architecture of the building is so different from outside. Once you will step it you will be amazed to see the way it has been maintained inside. A very good view from the top of the building.
