  • Near the stone, in the oldest part of Antwerp. To the meat House you can also see the remnants of one of the first stone ramparts of Antwerp. The museum houses a large collection of musical instruments.

  • The meat House was a meeting place of the meat cutters and here was from 1504 meat traded. It is a museum since 1913. I had no idea what would be in the museum to see and you soon think of something with meat. On the site I found out that here a look back will be given for six hundred years of music and dance in the city of Antwerp and became curious. The meat House is a beautiful building from outside and from within. One is in the process of restoration to the exterior. Inside there is a randomness to all kinds of instruments. One has an app for the smart phone. You can read and hear the stories of the music instrument how that sound like you the relevant number of the musical instrument. That is a wonderful addition to all you see here. In the basement there is also an instrument workshop and you can see how one clocks. I'm here a few hours fresh. The museum is open from Thursday to Sunday.
