New in town

Antwerp was waiting for this building for many years but finally in May 2011 it was time to open the biggest museum in the city. AS is a place where you can enjoy the rich History of Antwerp and it will always give you an amazing view on different levels on Antwerp.


The museum


The old harbor district, called Eilandje, is the new place to be. You will find many exclusive lofts, fancy bars and since May a museum also. The building itself is already a piece of pure modern architecture. Inside you can take the escalator on the public MAS-boulevard. Every floor has a special exhibition and you can visit it separately. The subject will always be: Antwerp through the ages.

The view


The square in front of the tower has the biggest work of our national pride, the artist Luc Tuymans. The best way to experience it is to go to the fifth floor. The mosaic square will show you a dead skull, inspired by a stone on the wall of the cathedral of Antwerp.
Every day, except on Monday it is possible to visit the museum and it’s free entry. Go up in the evening and get blown away by one of the most beautiful shows on earth: the sunset. That’s the perfect way to make your visit extra special.



Boulevard: Tue-Sun open from 9.30am - 11.30pm


Expo: Tue-Fri 10am - 5pm. Sat-Sun 10am - 6pm


Tanguy, 32 PERSONAL SHOPPER

Antwerp has no secrets for me: designer shops, fashion design and custom-tailoring workshops, pastry shops you can't afford to miss, small, quaint hotels off the main tourist routes, cultural book shops and wine bars... You'll love to come back. Promise! My little extra: fashion!
