One of most beautiful architectural building I have seen in my life. Each time I go to ANTWERP I try to pay a visit. There are permanent expositions but Aldo temporary. These lasts months nothing very new though.

with its port overlooking position and the more than interesting exhibitions , it is more than worthwile to visit. And in the neigbourhood you find a lot of nice restaurants of all types and prices. And from there it is only some minutes to the Red Star Museum : another highlight.

A modern building in the very Southern part of the docklands area of Antwerp which is being much redeveloped. 8 levels of exhibitions - in my visit there was an excellent ( and very popular especially with both school parties and adult groups, but worth persevering!) exhibition on Sacred Places: Judaism, Christianity, Islam Pilgrimages. On other levels there were exhibitions... More

Let yourself go to the top of views on Antwerp and afterwards visit the rich modern exhibition in the various floors.

while visiting Antwerp, you have to go to Het MAS. If you are not interested in art and exhibitions, no worries, you can watch the amazing panorama of the city(For FREE)

Very interesting museum located in a beautifully designed building. Great view over the city from the rooftop. The only thing that's poorly organized is when you have to go up (and down) by elevator, because they won't let you do that by yourself, you need a guide from the museum to accompany you and that's very inconvenient.

The museum is quite different from other museums, and so worth visiting. Great value for money. Don't forget to visit the roof for a great view on Antwerp and the river Schelde. I even think that roof access is free of charge. The museum should get 2-3 hours for a good visit.

Quite fittingly for Belgium, the building resembles a massive chocolate! It houses a number of galleries which, on each floor, lead off an area affording a different view of the city. These views culminate on the roof (at the moment accessible only by stairs for the last flight. This is under review) with a magnificent panoramic view of the city.... More

We were very short of time so did not actually enter the gallery areas. The building is worth visiting, however, as the excalators that take you to the roof top terrace (free) have the side walls covered in harrowing photographs depicting the exodus of the citizens at the start of WW1. The view from the top is worthwile as you... More

We took the escalators up to the roof and really enjoyed the panoramic views of the city. These were spectacular, even though the weather was not terribly conducive to long views. The current exhibits were varied. The photographs beside the escalators (entitled 'Exodus') showed how more than a million of Belgians refugees escaped the First World War. They were absolutely...
