The MAS opened in 2011. The city was able to count on the support of sponsors and other partners for the museum’s realization. New agreements have been established since then.


Umicore, KBC Bank- en Verzekering, the Antwerp Port Authority and SD Worx were the first proud Founders of the MAS. Each of them made a substantial, structural contribution for five years. One Founder became concessionaire of a MAS pavilion: the ‘Port Pavilion’ (Port of Antwerp). 

Today, the Antwerp Port Authority still has a privileged relationship with the MAS. The current structural sponsor contribution goes to the care for the collections of the MAS.

When the MAS opened in 2011, the crowning touch was 3000 shiny aluminium hands that adorned the façade. They refer to the city legend of Brabo and Antigoon. Interested parties could purchase a hand via a sponsor package that ranged from € 1.000 to € 5.000. The hands literally cause the city icon to glitter and sparkle. The immortalised names of the hand sponsors are listed in the MAS Boulevard.
