The MAS museum does not only offer a spectacular view over the city, it also covers topics such as treatment of death in different religions, and the history of the port of Antwerpen! Unfortunately, most of the texts are only in Flemish. you needthe audio guide if you don't speak this language! great place to spend a couple of hours!

My favorite museum in Antwerp. In the same building you can get to know the history of the city (main focus of course is the haven), various permanent and temporary exhibitions , the ethnographic museum and on top of it a terrace (no ticket required for it) with a great view over the river and the city. Also the surrounding... More

The expo about Antwerp during ww is touching to see, while you have the look outs and learn more about why the city looks as it does. It is a powerful constellation of impressions in my opinion.

It is a known fact that the view from the top of the MAS building is the most magnificent in all of Antwerp and, on a day as glorious as the day we were experiencing, maybe one of the best views in Belgium. So renowned is this view that people were pacing it up the escalators desperate to ready the... More

This building is definitely worth a visit. Escalators take you up 10 floors with a magnificent panorama of Antwerp from the top (and on the way up). On the walls as you travel up there are interesting photo montages of what happened to Belgians during the First World War - these are also well worth seeing!

We went one evening after arriving in Antwerp and surprised to see building is open until midnight so we went the following night too to get some night shots from the top. We never went in to the museums itself but I did find the "Exodus" exhibition of Belgians leaving the city during WWI interesting and loved looking at the... More

We didn't pay to go in the museum, having relatively little time, and being put off by the TA reviews. But the climb up to the 10th storey, which is free, was well worth the time on the escalators, the wells and shafts of which were lined with pictures of the sufferings of the Flemish people in 1914-18. View is... More

The views of the city are amazing. The building is amazing. I never made it into any of the exhibits. I was too busy looking at the building and the views.

This museum is yet another ridiculous display of Flemish nationalism. Out of 10 stores, only 1 (where the temporary exhibition was held) had information in English and French. There are ENTIRE stores where you have not even the title or description of the various pieces in another language. Only a few sentences in one wall. Everything else is in Dutch.... More
