What we preserve

The MAS collection consists of more than 600,000 objects about art, cultural traditions and history of the city and port of Antwerp. But also about overseas shipping and trade, and about the art, cultural traditions and history of Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Oceania. The collection tells stories about Antwerp, the port and the world. About the world connected to Antwerp and about the world in Antwerp.

The MAS collection can be found in the museum and its depots, but is also fully searchable online via this link: MAS COLLECTIE ONLINE.
