Luckily, we learned this at the TI in the train station and saved a fruitless trip. Several other Antwerp museums are also closed— fashion museum, no show at MAS— so check before you go

Yes, the Red Star museum is closed until September 21st. I would check a few days after that, since there is a lot of road works in the area.
