Museum Vleeshuis


From Veemarkt square turn left into Vleeshouwersstraat and 80 meters away from St. Paul's you reach the museum.  


The museum Vleeshuis (Butcher's Hall) tells the story of 600 years of sound, music and dance in Antwerp. Get to know city music in all its variations: instruments, pictures, manuscripts, books, paintings and maquettes. They tell the compelling story of songs, city musicians and carillon players. There is also a broad section on opera in Antwerp, music in kiosks and concert buildings, family music, the construction of instruments and dance. Do not expect a classical museum of instruments, but a lively journey into the world behind music!

The Museum at the River (MAS) will tell a story about the city, its citizens, the river and the port. It is going to open in 2010. But the MAS will be so much more than a simple museum. It will become a program of its own, a mental lighthouse which takes into account its wider environment. This environment has a broad denominator: Its maritime character.
