Saturday night is museum night in Antwerp

Saturday 6 August is museum night in Antwerp. For the seventh year, museums will stay open beyond midnight to mark the occasion. In addition to a host of interesting exhibits, the city’s sixteen museums will lay on live music and cosy pavement cafés within their grounds.

A one-off payment of 7 Euro in advance or 8 Euros once the Museum Night is underway gives you unlimited access to museums such as the Rubens House, the Fashion Museum and the recently-opened MAS.

There is also a shuttle bus service between the various museums. The evening gets under with a performance by the Mehter fanfare band from Turkey on the square in front of Antwerp City Hall.

This provides a unique opportunity to see them perform here in Flanders.

Cycle hire and disabled access

Hire bikes will be available for a one-off payment of 2 Euro. Special cycle routes have been drawn up taking in the participating museums.

Those with limited mobility have not been forgotten. Free transport is being offered to those in wheelchairs, although it does need to be booked in advance. This can be done by calling +32 3 286 44 40 or 32 478 37 48 65.
