Alors on danse!

Dance organs are ingenious automatons that make people dance. They are a typically Belgian phenomenon. From 1900 they were extremely popular in Antwerp and Brussels. In the exhibition Celebration! the tradition of dance matinees is resumed.

In 2007 the Flemish Community bought a large collection of dance organs. The city of Antwerp also bought an icon: the Mortier organ.

On Tuesdays and Sundays, the MAS pulls the plug in and starts the organs. Come and take a look behind the scenes, come listen or take a step on the dance floor. Requests always welcome!



  • Every Tuesday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the museum hall on the 4th floor.
  • You only pay an entrance ticket to the exhibition. 
  • Reservation not necessary.
