22 - 26 April: access to the MAS via a temporary entrance

From 22 to 26 April 2024, we will replace some glass panels on the ground floor. During the works, the stairs and escalators between the ground floor and 1st floor will be closed. 

You can buy a ticket or have it scanned at the counter. From there, you go to a temporary entrance and can take the stairs to the 1st floor, and then the escalator to the museum rooms.

Thank you for your understanding.

City at war

Antwerp, 1940 - 1945

Military violence and mass persecution of Jews and dissenters during World War II broke the city. Personal stories and objects make this period very tangible in this new permanent MAS exhibition.


About the port, people and cargo

In 'Freight' you stop at various 'docks', each of which reveals a different part of the city's connection with world trade. A journey through the history of the port city. On view on the 6th floor.

Anybody home?

Looking for the sewer crocodile, listening to talking tableware, playing board games or drawing on the walls.... In the playful new family exhibition "Anybody home?" you will explore the MAS collection together with your (grand) children. You reflect on what a 'home' means. And one thing can already be revealed: it is different for everyone. 

Everything of worth

FREE ENTRANCE | What can be heritage? What has value and what does not? A photo exhibition in the boulevard explores these questions. It shows the people behind the city's heritage. And the exhibition is complemented by online stories.
