There are plenty places of interest, even with (teen) kids. You can take a ghost walk though the city in the evening (With an English speaking guide) or take a trip to Aquatopia.

You could consider taking them 1 day to an amusement park. Bobbejaanland is great for all ages, not too far and reasonably priced.

We've just returned from Antwerp with our 2 boys aged 14 and 15. We stayed at The Big Sleep which you'll find under the B&B section on hotel reviews - it's a great place to stay as its comfortable, clean and very central for all the places to visit in Antwerp and cost us 110 Euros per night which I thought was good value. We went to the aquarium while we were there which was good and there is a zoo too. The diamond museum is worth a visit but we didn't manage to get to any of the others as we only stayed 2 days (Sun/Mon) and all of the museums are closed on Mondays.

Public transport is very easy to use, especially the "underground". we have 12 different lines in the city center, you can find a map in PDF format on the following link:
