A look at research

The MAS preserves culturally and historically sensitive Congolese heritage that today numbers nearly 5,000 cultural objects. MAS staff, together with Congolese colleagues, are investigating the circumstances under which this collection disappeared from Congo. The first results of the study will be on display in the Visible Storage.

To the Antarctic

Belgica's polar pioneers
Individual visitors

From 21 June, 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.
