Owner description: Twice a year MoMu presents a new exposition: based on the MoMu collection (25,000 pieces), and completed with loaned works, these expositions might tell a designer's story or focus on a fashion related theme. You won't find a permanent display here, but rather a varied programme that focuses on the differente dimensions of the world of fashion.

“A bit overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

If you are less familiar with fashion, the MoMu gives you less of an experience. I think the fare is too high for what the museum offers. I expected a little more than just the temporary exhibition. €5 instead of €8 would be more appropriate.

“Amazing knitting exhibition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2011

The MoMu is Antwerp's fashion museum and had the most amazing knitting exhibition this summer, from beautiful 18c stockings to contemporary couture. There was also an exhibition by a recent Antwerp fashion graduate with a beautiful collection of animal inspired menswear.

This knitting exhibition was the main reason we decided to go on holiday to Belgium in the first place and it was superb.

The museum doesn't have a permanent collection on display, you will only see the current exhibition, so it's worth finding out what's on before you visit.

The only thing I disliked about the museum is that they make you leave all bags, even a small handbag, in a locker which is always a terrible worry if you're on holiday in a strange country.

“A must for lovers of design and fashion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

An exhibition of the use of knitwear by famous fashion designers was beautifully displayed and we were allowed to take photos. The only problem was the design of the catalogue as it was hard to attribute designers to some of the exhibits.

“MoMu, the antwerp fashion museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2009

With constantly changing exhibitions, MoMu is the perfect spot for checking out (antwerp) fashion. Definately worth checking out. The architecture is also really incredible, and so is the museum book shop, that sells (exclusive) fashion and art magazines and books.
