Mini exhibitions with a passion for collectors
In the windows of the Visible Storage area, the MAS displays ever-changing mini-exhibitions from the highly varied Antwerp collection. It’s always worth plunging in once more and savouring all these rich and special collections.
A look behind the scenes
You can view loads of objects not on display through a glass wall. You'll see racks, cabinets and walls, all crammed with items. Pull out the drawers one by one and discover the maritime treasures of the MAS. Or be surprised by rows of garden gnomes. And touch the materials wall in the last museum space, and find out how materials are affected by 20 million fingers.
All objects are kept in optimal conditions in the Visible Storage. The climate control system ensures a constant temperature and humidity. The objects are in acid-free boxes, special containers or special packaging. Museum staff record and inspect objects and take pieces on loan in and out.
