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.

Eyecatchers

FREE ENTRANCE | In the exhibition 'Eyecatchers', 16 Antwerp residents give their own take on our collection and choose their personal masterpiece. Because a masterpiece is something different for everyone.

To the Antarctic

Belgica's polar pioneers
    Friday 21 June 2024 until Sunday 3 November 2024 from 10:00 to 17:00

Come and meet the expedition members of the Belgica. Some 125 years ago, they set off from Antwerp to the last blind spot on the world map: Antarctica. The expedition got stuck in the polar ice and made history as a result. Learn how the men managed to survive, who followed in their footsteps, and what Antarctica is like today.

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.

Antwerp à la carte

About cities and food

The history of the city, on the surprising, erratic and often invisible trail of food. An exhibition that excites all your senses.

Freight

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. 

Art from Pre-Columbian America

Collection Paul & Dora Janssen-Arts

A world famous collection that tells us about the extraordinary relationship between man and the world of gods, ancestors and spirits in America before the conquest by the Europeans.
