MAS - festivallocatie

The MAS aims to be an international and groundbreaking museum about global connections between people and collections from diverse worlds of thought and life. With a stream of stories, viewed from multiple perspectives, we engage everyone curious about the present, past and future of Antwerp and the world.

The MAS works with the public and partners, nationally and internationally. The diverse collection ranges from history, art and culture of the port city of Antwerp, through international trade and shipping to art and culture in Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Oceania. The iconic MAS building is the place where city and world meet. There is room for dialogue and experimentation.
