Museum aan de Stroom (MAS)
As a city on a river, Antwerp has attracted people from all over the world for centuries. Throughout the centuries, people met to exchange ideas and goods. Traces of these encounters are collected in the MAS. The collection boasts over 500,000 museum pieces, and permanent and temporary exhibitions offer a refreshing look at the city and centuries of contact with the world. On the square in front of the MAS, you literally walk around on world-quality art. A huge mosaic by one of Antwerp’s most fascinating living artists, Luc Tuymans, occupies the Hanzestedenplaats.
TOP TIP: Head for the roof for an impressive 360 degree panoramic view of the city, the port and the river. www.mas.be/en
