The MAS is more than a museum. A walkway with undulating glass sections leads you all the way to the top. On each floor awaits a new story about Antwerp, the river, the port and the world. Be enchanted by the City’s largest museum and discover why the locals are so fond of it. Students without vertigo can also enjoy great roof-top views. Those who prefer to have both feet firmly on the ground can enjoy ‘Dead Skull’, the work of art by Luc Tuymans on the square in front of the museum.
PAY ATTENTION! You are studying in the boulevard, use the earbuds or head phones from Sennheiser (available at the front desk).

When you feel peckish and you’ve brought your own lunch, why not have it along the MAS promenade, with stunning views of Antwerp thrown in for free. Tip: ask for a picnic blanket at the desk on the ground floor to make it extra cosy.
In fact, around the MAS, there is no shortage of cafés and restaurants! Enjoy a delicious coffee at Black & Yellow Coffee Bar or George’s Espresso bar, grab a healthy lunch or a refreshing juice from Maona or Story Urban Deli Shop, pizzas at Otomat or Da Giovanni (yes, there is also one on the Eilandje in Londenstraat), burgers galore at Burgerij or Ellis Gourmet Burger and if you fancy a cold beer, then why not head for one of the cafés around or in the museum?
Need more inspiration? At your place of study, you will find the Antwerp Student Guide, which has all the must-know addresses in the area.
Bicycle parking can be found at the flag parade in front of the museum or at the back entrance. You can park your bike in the MAS Velo station or St Laureiskaai. At the railway stations Antwerp Centraal and Antwerp Berchem, you can rent the ‘Blue Bikes’ rental bikes. If you prefer to come by public transport, you can make use of De Lijn’s route planner. Buses 17, 30, 34 and 291 stop nearby, or take tram 7 to St Pietersvliet, which is at the entrance of the museum.
