Its a big place, and has lots of modern sculpture around the park. The children can get lots of exercise. The old house serves as a cafe/information/souvenir centre, You would be recommended to pack an umbrella or waterproof if its slightly wet. Take your camera, but not your prejudices. In October the leaf colour and fall were also attratcive. From Antwerp Rooselvelts Plaats take the 21 bus and get off at Middelheim.

This museum is a fantastic place to enjoy truly amazing sculptures and "in situ" artworks by the best artists from the 20th and 21st centuries. It is really an unmissable destination for art lovers visiting Belgium.

Perfect place for a picknick or when you need a break from the city. The combination of nature and sculptures make this place very pleasant. You can get there by bus or by bicycle from the center. Entrance is free. Get a map of the park and the sculptures at the Castle , where you can enjoy a drink outside.

Large park where you can enjoy watching nice sculptures while wandering around. There is a mix of permanent sculptures and temporary exhibitions.

A perfect destination to spend the afternoon together with your young children (on hot summer days). There is lots of shade and in the park across the street there is child-friendly restaurant and bar with a very large playground ("De Melkerij).
