There are some 8 levels of which 5 are full of displays most are permanent but there are also regularly short term exhibits. This museum was made for people of today' day and age, it give the history of the... More

The MAS is a landmark building in Antwerpen worth visiting for its architecture, the views from the roof terrace and for its exhibitions. Definitely to be recommended. However, we found one exhibition could have been particularly interesting rather badly presented. The photo exhibition "Exodus - Fleeing the War" tells the story of one and half million Belgians fleeing the First... More

The addy family's average mark review on this site cannot be bettered in my opinion. The views from the top over Antwerp are outstanding and give a picture of a city of contrasts - beautiful old architecture and a thriving industrial port. This alone is worth the visit. Then we started on the exhibition halls - they could learn a... More

Within the MAS there are several exhibitions that you can visit. We visited all and they where all very well put together and informative. The exhibitions do not cover a specific topic. So there will be something for everybody. And in case you don't like to go a musuem the building itself is worth a visit. Very nice architecture and... More

Intrigued by building's form inside we ventured. And once inside, we wondered from floor to floor , enjoying exhibits of Antwerp's history , war and power insignia... expected to see more of Antwerp's own history but found some interesting exhi-bits from Asia...hmmm...View from roof is truly spectacular, and yes, it's free.

This is an absolute must see if you are travelling to Antwerp. The concept rivals the London Eye and it's free for all to go into and see until late at night. The views are astonishing over Antwerp.

On nine levels in a futuristic, Dutch architect designed building one gets the impression of floating on water. A wide array of exhibits encompassing art and culture from all continents is exhibited. Special emphasis on Belgium/Antwerp's role and sufferings, during the 1st and 2nd world wars as well as the port city's role in the reconstruction of the nation. All... More

To be honest the museum itself is ok but it is a lot about Antwerp and if that is not really your interest then it is less appealing. What is appealing though is the view from the topfloor. Take your camera.

The new MAS building is spectacular from the outside and inside. It is surrounded by private yachts and some working boats. The plaza area around the MAS is ideal on a sunny day.
