M HKA - the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp - is one of the eight major institutions of the Flemish Community. The museum keeps its finger on the pulse of current events in contemporary art both at home and abroad. Located in the avant-garde city par excellence, M HKA houses a rich and diverse collection which it displays in frequently changing presentations both inside and outside the museum. M HKA is a dynamic meeting place for art, artists and culture lovers alike; every year, it presents a versatile exhibition program that is supplemented with numerous artists' talks, performances, lectures, book presentations, walking talks and activities for young and old. Also, every Thursday, the museum is open at night until 9 p.m. The M HKAFE, M HKA's welcoming cafeteria, is the ideal place for a drink or a delicious lunch.

And it was worth it. Rey interesting exhibits, and a dedicated staff. Great contemporary architecture. Part free, part paying. If your in the Zuid, give it a try. Some cool eateries close by.

Already from the outside, this museums makes you frown the eyebrows. It feels like looking at a huge ship from too close, or at a row of unmatched extensions like you see so often in Belgium. Then you enter the reception area which is at...More

Of course M HKA's exhibitions change every few weeks or months, so a review is highly dependent on the exhibition on display, but overall - as a returning visitor for the last 10 to 12 years - and an art professional, I've rarely been impressed...More

I think this modern building is well-suited for a contemporary art collection. With modern art, usually only a fraction of the displays are interesting enough to draw attention. Unfortunately, I did not have this experience here, even though the collection was fairly large.

Not the best time to visit as it was partial closed due to works, which was disappointing and only 1.5 floors with pieces, wasn't the best!
