    Intriguing exhibitions!
    A museum with alot of very different exhibitions (helpful for keeping you interested as it's quite a large museum). Most exhibitions were interactive and very easily accessible with audio guides in Dutch, French, and English. A small number of exhibitions were a bit dry, but this was definitely a minority. Well worth a visit with admission fairly cheap.

    Check Before You Pay
    It’s free to enter the museum and use the escalators to enjoy the panoramic views of the harbour and the city from each floor and the open space on top of the building. We very much enjoyed our trip to the top of the building and the views. We decided to see what exhibitions were of interest on each floor on the way down before paying anything. We found that most were still at the preparation stage. We did enjoy one free exhibition, but we decided it was not worth paying the €12 each for the remaining exhibitions.

    Interesting museum
    Antwerp's Museum Aan de Stroom (MAS) is a cultural gem. The stunning architectural design draws you in, and once inside, you're treated to a treasure trove of art, history, and culture. The exhibits are thoughtfully curated, showcasing Antwerp's rich maritime heritage and diverse heritage. But what truly sets MAS apart is the panoramic view from its rooftop. It's a breathtaking vantage point over the city, offering an unparalleled perspective of Antwerp's beauty. A visit to MAS is a sensory and intellectual delight, combining art, history, and a spectacular skyline view that's not to be missed.

    Amazing modern museum
    Stunning modern building, very well thought out and laid out museum. Views from the terrace on the 10th floor were incredible. We only visited two out of the many exhibitions, but they were very well curated. For me it kind of summed up the Antwerp vibe (although I only spent half a day in the city, unfortunately).

    Great museum!
    I had a great time at the Museum aan de Stroom. It is a beautiful building with a fantastic view of the city. The museum has an interesting collection of objects and stories that show the history and culture of Antwerp. I learned a lot about the port, migration, art and the diversity of this city. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this museum for anyone visiting Antwerp.

Popped in intending a short visit but the collection was so large, varied and interesting we ended spending half a day. The section devoted to Antwerp during WW2 was fabulous. The pre-Columbian America section was very good too (though as lazy English-only speakers we could have done with a bit more there). And the other sections - on the history of Antwerp, life at home, food etc - were imaginatively curated and so more enjoyable than they might sound.

It's a tower with the different sections on each floor , accessed by external stairs and escalators. There seemed to be a cafe at the top but it was closed due to a private event. plus we didn't see any other toilets except those on the ground floor....so eat and used the facilities before you start as you probably won't want to come all the way down and have to go back up again half way through.

Nearby if you have time it's worth wandering over to the water front to look at the old cranes dockside.

The museum hosts several expositions. Only some can be visited by using the basic entrance ticket. None was especially interesting. Anyway, the visit is worth it to admire the city from the top terrace.

MASsive building with lots in it, mainly stairs (also escalators (moving stairs), and lovely accessibility-ticking lifts). Plenty of weirdness - little made sense but conversely it meant there was something for everyone!

On a very wet late November Friday,I visited the MAS Art Museum and especially appreciated the temporary "Rare and Indispensable"Art exhibit(ends February 25 2024).I saw splendid masterpieces from different Flemish Art Collections.Painters with marvelous paintings in this exhibit included the following Netherlandish Renaissance Period Painters;Hugo Van Der Goes("Death of Virgin"),Hans Memling("Adoration of Magi").Quentin Metsys("Christ on Cross With Donor"),and 2 Panels from Baltimore-Antwerp Quadratych("Saint Christopher")("Resurrection").Baroque Period Paintings worthy of accolades included Willem Van De Haecht's"Gallery of Cornelis Vander Geest"and Jacob Jordaens's"Christ On Cross"plus a fine sculptural work by Giacomo Manzu("The Cardinal")
I also enjoyed fine paintings by Theodore Gericault("Kleptomaniac")George Grosz("Walter Muhring")and American Tom Wesselman.The curatorial work was tip top and there was a plethera of information about the works of Art in English.
In the Antwerp A La Carte Exhibit,I saw fine paintings by Abel Grimmer("Antwerp Polder,Sebastian Vrancz("In Different Seasons")and Pieter Van Braedel("Ox Market,Antwerp""). Visiting MAS was indeed a captivating experience.

We were told to visit teh museum for teh views of teh harbour and city from the roof terrace
What we found was floor after floor of amazing displays
There were 2 floors displaying everyday artefacts donated by citizens that gives a wonderful cultural history of teh city and the world
Another floor was all about food and the future of survival, it was instructive, amusing and provocative
Another floor about waht home means to different people, very interesting as this was approached through many different perspectives
We were pretty museum outed by then were going to ignore the floor with the pre-Columbian treasures, we decided to have a quick look, Glad that we did and we spent a long time on this floor the displays, explanations and history were amazing
We dis make it to the terrace to view the landscape - very goo
Absolutely amazing place
