    Check Before You Pay
    It’s free to enter the museum and use the escalators to enjoy the panoramic views of the harbour and the city from each floor and the open space on top of the building. We very much enjoyed our trip to the top of the building and the views. We decided to see what exhibitions were of interest on each floor on the way down before paying anything. We found that most were still at the preparation stage. We did enjoy one free exhibition, but we decided it was not worth paying the €12 each for the remaining exhibitions.

    Interesting museum
    Antwerp's Museum Aan de Stroom (MAS) is a cultural gem. The stunning architectural design draws you in, and once inside, you're treated to a treasure trove of art, history, and culture. The exhibits are thoughtfully curated, showcasing Antwerp's rich maritime heritage and diverse heritage. But what truly sets MAS apart is the panoramic view from its rooftop. It's a breathtaking vantage point over the city, offering an unparalleled perspective of Antwerp's beauty. A visit to MAS is a sensory and intellectual delight, combining art, history, and a spectacular skyline view that's not to be missed.

    Amazing modern museum
    Stunning modern building, very well thought out and laid out museum. Views from the terrace on the 10th floor were incredible. We only visited two out of the many exhibitions, but they were very well curated. For me it kind of summed up the Antwerp vibe (although I only spent half a day in the city, unfortunately).

    Great museum!
    I had a great time at the Museum aan de Stroom. It is a beautiful building with a fantastic view of the city. The museum has an interesting collection of objects and stories that show the history and culture of Antwerp. I learned a lot about the port, migration, art and the diversity of this city. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this museum for anyone visiting Antwerp.

    Museum with a twist
    Fabulous building clad in Indian red sandstone and decorated with the hand emblem of Antwerp. Each floor is rotated 90 degrees round from the last. Great views across the city from the top. Good hotdogs and nice staff in the ground-floor cafe. The permanent exhibitions don’t go for linear narratives but collections of artefacts, pictures and videos the give bite-sized impressions and make you think. Lie down on a bean bag and watch people’s thoughts on what constitutes “home”. The Antwerp at War section had heartbreaking vignettes of individuals and families and what happened to them. Most of the exposition is trilingual. Really well done and definitely worth a visit.

I recommend to use the carpark under the hangar, next to the river. If you walk, it is a 20 minute walk from the cathedral. The square in front of the museum is clean, spacious and a nice area to hang out on a sunny day. There is a little bakers with Belgium sausage rolls. The service to buy tickets was efficient and friendly. There are escalators to each floor. I believe the viewing platform (terrace) is on th 10th floor and this last floor has no escalator. Not sure if there is a lift all the way up. This platform is free of charge and really nice views on a sunny day.
The exhibitions are spread out between different floors.
There is a cafeteria on the bottom floor, nice and not the cheapest, like all Belgium prices...
Definitely worth a visit.

MAS is a must to visit in Antwerp. Every floor has a different exhibition and it can be fun for children and adults as well. The view is stunning and the building itself a work of art.
I did not like the fact that it was crowdy. This did not aloud me to observe the pieces of art as I wanted.
Nevertheless it is a nice museum to visit but try to avoid busy days like Sunday morning.

We ended up walking to the museum as we couldn't work out the public transport to the site. (We also know it is closed on Monday's). Worth the 12 euro entrance fee. Modern, accessible building with a nice cafe. Each floor needs a different amount of time so make sure you know what are your must sees. My favourite was floor 2 which was dedicated to artefact curation and packing. Others liked the more Antwerp specific stuff. The history of the Belgian organ was also fascinating.
Unfortunately when we got to the top floor and viewing area it was raining so we missed out on photos of the roof tops of Antwerp and the River Scheldt to the sea.
In summary, take your time, this museum is easy to rush and miss things.

Always nice to visit the MAS, the entrance to the building is free, just remember the entrance to the exhibits is not. Nice to picknick inside in front of one of the large windows or to take a look at the city of Antwerp on top. Watch out for temporary exhibitions ! They have a lot to offer.

The musuem is friendly to students, travelers families etc. You can explore inside the building without buying a ticket to a museum. Cafe inside, bar downstairs, plenty of space to relax and enjoy. Breathtaking views and a very interesting experience each time I’ve been here.

An extravagantly designed building with important displays particularly the Pre-Colombian ethnographic collection. Excellent and sensibly priced cafe 'Storm' offed a good lunch when we broke off half way round. The Panorama roof top area is worth a visit but has no access for disabled visitors. Lift only by request so you have to use escalators to access the many levels.

Had a high sense of anticipation. Of three main galleries, the interpretation of Antwerp in WW2 was closed (until September), the only access to the roof was a via a single out of action escalator and the shop/book shop was closed. Disappointing.

A museum with alot of very different exhibitions (helpful for keeping you interested as it's quite a large museum). Most exhibitions were interactive and very easily accessible with audio guides in Dutch, French, and English. A small number of exhibitions were a bit dry, but this was definitely a minority. Well worth a visit with admission fairly cheap.
