Great variety of art and installations in a pleasant park. The reward is well worth the effort of travel. From Rodin to Henry Moore to Chris Burden and Ai Weiwei with much inbetween like The Mad Maidenby Rik Wouters. And entrance is free.

Tip: they are closed on Mondays!!! The gates are locked and you will not be able to enter! Beautiful park with an outdoor museum filled with sculptures. Highly recommend you walk through it if you have the time.

To get to Middleheim we took the number 6 tram to Olympiade, and then walked for about 20 minutes through pleasant residential suburbs. We were expecting to see the 58 statues and sculptures listed on the website www.middleheimmuseum.be, but were delighted to find many more. To appreciate all of the works you need a few hours. There is a café... More

Forget the diamonds. This forest sculpture garden alone is worth the trip to Antwerp. Everywhere one looks, there's an exciting work of art - Calder, Arp, Zadkine, Rodin, Moore, Manzu, Laurens, et al. Unlike a museum environment, these pieces are alive here. One is free to touch, to photograph, or just linger in the energy they provoke/invoke. It's a true... More

Popped in for an hour prior to an afternoon in Antwerp - lots of free parking available. The park is lovely with sculptures dotted around all over the place - we quickly found the Antony gormley and another piece by Henry Moore. Nice that the sculptures are easy to access and interact with - the kids loved finding the bizarre... More

I was looking for something to do with a friend whilst on a day off in Antwerp and came across this place. It is something different that anyone of any age could find entertaining as it is a bit of an adventure trail finding all the different art exhibits on display in the lovely grounds. We were able to cycle... More
