This is an open maritime museum, we wondered along the board walk just looking at the ships, how small they were and the names and dated they were built. I would say this is a must see you will be surprised at what you see there.

Maritime open-air museum Boeienweide
Nov 2017 • Solo
The story of the Boeienweide starts in 1960 when the training ship 'Mercator' is taken out of service. In 1961, Prince Albert inaugurated the ship as a museum on the Left Bank. A year later, the meadow around the ship is also used as a 'maritime open-air museum'. Captivating buoys, anchors, barrels, screws, a cannon etc. about 'life along and on the Scheldt'. Old Ship propellers, Anchors, Cannon, Clocks also called 'sound signal', Buoys and beacons. There is also a playground. Not really a museum but if you are in St. Anna's Tunnel left bank you can go there for a walk

Shipping equipment in a meadow
Dec 2016 • Solo
This 'buoys meadow' is a meadow with scattered pieces of shipping and harbour equipment, such as anchors, buoys, and things I could not identify. Access is free, and it is always open. If there were descriptions, I missed them in the dark. As other raters mention, from this place on the west bank one gets a nice view of the Antwerp skyline. Right next to the entrance of the pedestrian tunnel under the Schelde river. I'd say it's good for a visit after the museums have closed and you're still eager to see more (but it's not lit, so maybe bring a torch or rely on the flash of your camera). But if you have to choose between visiting this spot or one of the historic museums in Antwerp, I'd definitely go for the latter.

Urgent need for an update
Jul 2016 • Couples
The only good thing left here is the view of Antwerp from the left bank of the Schelde. You can't really call this a museum.

It's in open air and you can find old buoys, anchors and some cannons. Most or rusty and need some paint.

There is playground and you can sit on several benches.

A small outside museum of maritime items
Jul 2015 • Family
The small outside museum is located just north of Annatunnel. There are some old buoys, anchors and similar items on display and there is also a playground located here. If you are taking a walk with small children in the Annatunnel you can also visit this place.
