Yesterday I told you about my favorite part of the MAS : the amazing view from the building.
see : " What a view"
Ofcourse that is not the only reason why one should visit it. The new museum focuses on Belgian art and the history of Antwerp, but they also have a floor dedicated to " symbols of power" , two floors about " life and death in different religions and societies and much more.. It's hard to describe for me because the museum offers such a wide range of topics. I'm sure everyone can find something he is interested in. All the collections, videos, ..are presented in very modern and original ways and the museum itself is very spacious , so the fact it was so crowded didn't bother me at all.
But it's not only the content of the MAS that I admired... I love the architecture of the museum, eventhough aesthetically it's not really my taste ( somehow I don't like red buildings) , the building is so well designed practically. The big windows give you a great overview of the area around it and all the light coming in gives the museum a warm atmosphere.
For those of who thinking of visiting it , I would advice you to take a look at the website :
I'm sure you'll find a much better description there. ( collection, architects, museumshop and restaurants, practical information, founder,...)
