  • Large overview about the history of Antwerp. Large South American art collection from the Janssens family. Fantastic panorama from the rooftop terrasse. Minus point, closed from 5 p.m. during week...  more »
  • I accidentally spent 3+ hours here...so much to see, and a well curated exhibit on each floor. For pre-museum fuel, Roest across the street is a good spot.  more »

  • An iconic building in the heart of Antwerp's historic dockside area. Taking the escalators up to the tenth floor observation deck is a must but you also get some great views of the city while inside through the waves of glass panels that make up the distinctive walls.
  • Architecturally beautiful and playful. Very interesting exhibitions focusing on the city but not only. There's a free rooftop terrace with a stunning view of the whole city. Tickets are not expensive. Worth the visit
