I was expecting a history of Antwerp (which I know is interesting) but over 6 levels you have a rather odd collections of themed displays such as religion and food. The observation deck gives good views across the city. Most of the signage was in Flemish, not French, not English.

The building is due to its architecture an iconic landmark and offers superb views on the city and the river from the top floor. therefore alone it is worth a visit. If you are going for the collections inside don't bother, it is an assembly of leftovers from other museums and has no real focus. The restaurant on the top... More

You can enter this museum and pay entrance tickets for the current exhibitions or you can enter freely to take the elevator to the top to have a 360° view from Antwerp, the harbour and the river. Try to find the highlights of Antwerp: the cathedral, the boekentower, central station, ...

We passed this building on a city tour. I would have loved to have visited it; but time did not permit. The structure looked impressive.

This place is quite a thing. The whole building consists of Marbel looking tiles both in- and outside. Take some time to climb the escalators to the roof to have a nice panoramic view. It is for free!

You can immediately recognize MAS by its tall red-brick, state of the art architecture. The interior setting and display of its numerous collections looked more like a modern art museum, despite the thematic divisions: Metropolis, Power, Life & Death, and Antwerp's history. Most exhibits were given QR codes allowing visitors to access website info in 5 languages (English, Dutch, French,... More

This is a gorgeous landmark and they have a lot of good expositions during the year. The building is mostly stairs to the roof though. On the roof you get a gorgeous view of the city we all love; Antwerp. Even if you don't want to visit a museum, visit this one for the breathtaking view. Also, the view is... More
