Temporary exhibitions

The MAS presents exhibitions on a wide range of subjects, offering very diverse experiences: sometimes grand and monumental, and sometimes small and intimate, but invariably fascinating. The emphasis is on the link between city and world. Discover the exhibitions of the MAS.

A journey through time

The escalators in the MAS didn't only take visitors up to the roof, they also allowed to travel through time with impressive photographs of the collection.


100 x Congo

The exhibition ‘100 x Congo’ features one hundred unique highlights from our Congolese collection. What stories are hidden behind the objects? How did they end up here? What did they mean to Congolese peoples? And what about the African presence in Antwerp?

Everyday fear

V-bombs in Antwerp, 1944-1945

The MAS focuses on a piece of city history from the Second World War. In the pavilion, you can see where V-bombs fell on Antwerp and the scars they have left behind, by means of photographs, first-person testimonies and maps. You can even see a real V1-bomb from the MAS collection.

Breaking Boundaries

Antwerp Olympic city

A hundred years ago, Antwerp organised the Olympic Games. In spite of the difficult post-war situation and limited financial resources, the Games were groundbreaking. This mini exhibition includes posters, photos, trophies and medals from the sports event and its participants.
