This is a beautiful little gem of a museum if you are interested in old musical instruments. They provide a lot of information and it is not crowded.

An old Butchers Hall that has now been converted into a musical museum celebrating Antwerps Musical Heritage. An interesting look into how bells are made, an exhibit of a famous brass instrument shop in Lier that has now closed and displays of the many instruments in the cities. A must for people who love music.

We did not plan to come here but got surprised by a sudden heavy rain and discovered this gem of a museum! This museum has a collection of old music instruments. Through an app you can hear the sound of the instruments being played. There is also a full piano waiting for you to play on! The museum is done very well, good explanations. No discount for students but a discount for under 25.

The Vleeshuis is, despite its name, a very interesting museum of musical instruments. Lots of things to see and hear, good for kids.

The visit to the museum of musical instruments is really worth while. Depending on interest you spent 1,5 hrs strolling between an interesting collection. An app allows you to hear the individual sound of each instrument. In the lower area you find reconstructed workshops for tower bells and brass instruments. When in historical center of Antwerp, do not hesitate!

This is an interesting building both inside and out, the exterior built in red and white resembling a side of bacon. The museum is dedicated to a historic collection of music and dance exhibits which is rather more interesting that it might sound.

The striped stone in red and white is to remind you of bacon...because this was the Old Butchers Hall and the butcher would butcher pork, and that is where you find the bacon... This was the neighborhood of meat markets.

Behind these building you will find wonderful gardens and courtyards.

Now a museum focusing on sound, music and dance in Antwerp with displays of instruments, books and more..

This is a wonderful museum in a wonderful building. You can hear recordings of many of the instruments on the website (the museum has free wifi that lets you connect to the site).

The museum tell s the story of music through the ages. Downstairs is a mock up of a bell making workshop and a dance hall complete with a dance music organ that runs on punched paper strips. Someone will open the back to let you see the workings as it plays.

Museum Vleeshuis is a museum housed in one of the most striking buildings in Antwerp and located in an area of outstandingly beautiful architecture.
Located at the meeting point of Drie Hespenstraat,Repenstraat and Vleeshouwerstraat this former guildhall was known as Bloedberg ( Blood Mountain ) also known as the Blood Hall ,its an absolutely amazing looking building, very photogenic and not too far from the Grote Markt and Groenplaats .
A wonderful building in a great location, well worth checking out.

Unexpected finding while walking around. Excellent exposition for a very fair fee, they have got a collection of nicely restored musical instruments from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era.

The coolest thing is that they have got recordings showing how most of the instruments sound like in the museum's website (adapted to smartphone, so no need to download an app), as well as their historical background. There is also a cabinet showing how 3D replicas are designed, printed and tested.

The building itself is worth visiting too!
