3 August 2013: Antwerp Museum Night

Anneke Goris of the Oxford Society Committee is organising a joint visit to the Antwerp museum night, 3 August.

Please register via this form:


There will be car sharing from Brussels to Antwerp and back. So no worries about getting there and back.

“Dear members,

Saturday evening 3 August 2013, 16 Antwerp musea swing open their doors from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. at night for an alternative visit. The Antwerp ‘tempels of art’ pamper the visitors with summer bars, nocturnal guided tours, workshops, concerts, DJ-sets, a Human Jukebox and even a demonstration bodypainting.

One ticket provides access to the following 16 musea: MAS and the 3 pavilions next to it, Vleeshuis, Letterenhuis, Rockoxhuis, KMSKA (Koningin Fabiolazaal), Rubenshuis, Museum Plantin-Moretus, Fashion Museum, Diamond museum (pop-up), Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Maagdenhuismuseum, MuHKA (contemporary art), FotoMuseum and Cinema Zuid.

And don’t forget the amazing view over the Antwerp skyline by night from the top floor of the MAS!

This is THE ideal occasion to discover Antwerp’s hidden treasures!

Tickets: 7 euros (pre-sale through the website), 8 euros on the day.

A shuttle-bus connects the musea and leaves ca. every 15min. from different places in the city. Included in the ticket price. Most of the musea are on walking distance from each other though.

Members who are interested should take care of tickets themselves. These can be purchased in pre-sale through this link http://purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase?agency=PROSPEKTA&organ_val=24759&perfcode=MUSEUM&perfsubcode=2013 and recuperated on the day in the ticket office (open till 7 p.m.) – or purchased on the day itself.

A map of the participating musea and the route of the shuttle-bus is available through this link: http://www.museumnacht.be/Portals/museumnacht/stadsplan_1.pdf

The website of the event (only available in Dutch, unfortunately): http://www.museumnacht.be/

We would suggest to have an informal dinner in Antwerp prior to the event, after which all members can go and visit the musea they prefer.

Hope to see many of you at what is going to be a great event!
