A journey through time

From 7 May 2019

The MAS collection consists of some 500,000 objects that, altogether, tell the story of Antwerp and the world. From 7 May 2019, the escalators in the MAS will not only take visitors up to the roof, they will also allow them to travel through time with impressive photographs of the collection.

Starting at the oldest museum piece, the bones of the giant Antigoon, which are over five million years old, travelling through Egypt, the Mayan civilisation and the Schelde before the year 0 and exploring the history of Antwerp and Europe, Africa, Asia, America and Oceania before reaching the most recent collection pieces at the MAS.
