  • If I could compare a building in Germany, it would be with the Elbphilarmonie. Clear here no concerts, but the mood and the panoramic view is just awesome. If you want a very cool view of Antwerp, and free, must get past here

  • Great views from the roof terrace. The entrance to the terrace is free of charge. Location of the Museum is great, because there develops an entirely new city quarter.

  • Large building, many glass Windows, escalators, exhibition spaces jealously tucked away, nice view over Antwerp. But for the rest ...

  • Worth a visit, even without paying. You can access the first few floors and go al the way to the top for a nice view over Antwerp. If you do decide to pay for the museum you're allowed to enter the exhibitions on the other floors. These range from modern art to the history of the city, and is worth the money. Most floors offer some kind of activity to keep kids occupied. The building itself has some cool architecture and looks great from both the inside and the outside. Keep this one in mind when visiting Antwerp.
  • Great museum to discover a lot about the history of Antwerp and from cultures around the world, like the African continent, a lot about trading in Antwerp and around Europe. After every exhibition there is a special thing to do which makes interaction with the visitors very good. Also the guiding looks very good and is located on 15 minutes from the center of the big city of Antwerp. It has a nice Square to relax at to sit and you can walk on the roof and take a drink at the top of the amazing view giving roof. You can see a lot of the city including the famous Our-Lady Cathedral.
  • The museum is not so impressive inside but this building is beautiful. Small port with all these boats is so cute. Gives nice atmosphere. Love to come there .
  • Great building. Good museum. Amazing views from the top (you don't need to pay to go to the top)
  • THE view from the top is amazing !! and its free!!! can you believe it?? its perfect when its raining there are many things to see inside of museum for free -like some history about the city or chocolate history! others you have to pay! dont worry about stairs to walk up! there are lift! there are bathroom for free !
