About the MAS
The MAS is more than a museum. It also includes a Visible Storage, a museum square, contemporary art, a well-thought architecture, ...
The MAS is a ground-breaking museum that tells the story of the people, the past, present and future of the city of Antwerp and the world.
The MAS is more than a museum. It is a new city centre; a new meeting place where there is always something to see and do.
As well as being a museum, the MAS is a striking monument in Antwerp.
Below is an overview of what you’ll find on the various floors of the MAS. The permanent collection is housed in the Visible Storage area on +2 and on floors +4 to +8.
The MAS tells the story of Antwerp’s relationship with the world, a relationship that has lasted for five centuries. That story is open-ended. The museum has asked contemporary artists to bring it right up to date.
Antwerp-based architectural design bureau B-architecten was commissioned to design the displays for the galleries. First they came up with a master plan and then they drew up the designs for each floor.
