If you want to acquire knowledge about Antwerp, just go for a visit in MAS (Museum aan de Stroom). The wide ranging collection of the museum will uncover so many unknown facts of the city and the port. This is the exact place where the city and its port meet in true sense. In bonus if you go to the rooftop of MAS you will be able to capture the breathtaking 360° panoramic vision of Antwerp.
The building of the museum is really impressive along with its other collections. By visiting the museum you will get an unforgettable experience of its visible storage, square building with the Luc Tuymans’ mosaic and the boulevard. In a single museum you will be amazed to see the collaborative collections from the National Shipping Museum, the former Ethnographic Museum and the Folklore Museum. Along with the Paul and Dora Janssen-Arts collection and the Vleeshuis Museum collection MAS is sharing those huge collections in its building. The museum presently consists of more than 470,000 objects and the collection is still increasing. The collections are grouped with four universal themes spread throughout its five floors. The collections will tell you the story as they are connected with a dynamic scenography.
