Owner description: Museum Vleeshuis looks back at six hundred years of music and dance in the city. You will be immersed in the stories of musicians, shown how musical instruments are made, taken to the first balls and opera performances…and especially enjoy many beautiful sounds.

The highlight of our trip to this city. Looks stunning from the outside & houses a fascinating collection of instruments through the ages. We were given a free audioguide with our tickets; it has text about the exhibits & you can listen or enjoy video as you tour the displays. We had well over 2 1/2 hours here & I'd recommend it to all lovers of historical music. There's also a wonderful display of bells and how they're made.

The museum was ok, but I think there are a lot better museums (like MAS and MOMU) in Antwerp. So if you come for a short visit this is certainly not a must.

Compact exhibition of all things musical pertaining to Flanders, displayed over two floors.
Disappointingly, the 'audio guide' didn't have that much audio content - at least the English language version didn't! However, the English language visual explanations were very adequate.
You won't need much more than an hour here, but still a worthwhile diversion.
Visit if you're exploring the 'old town'.
