MAS, Antwerp

The Museum aan de Stroom (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 a landmark on the boundary between the city and the port, for those who are curious about the past, present and future of the city of Antwerp and the world. It is a museum for those who want to know more about Antwerp’s place, and their own, in the world. As a cultural heritage forum that works with various collections and methodologies, MAS is developing a diverse intramural and extramural programme, the common theme of which involves stories of the river, the city, the port and the world. They also work with the public, experts and other partners on both national and international levels to ensure maximum accessibility and involvement of the general public. The collection contains over 470,000 objects, including collections from museums which are now closed: the Ethnographic Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Folklore Museum, a part of the collection from the Vleeshuis Museum | Klank van de Stad, and the Paul en Dora Janssen-Arts collection of Pre-Columbian art
