On Saturday K and I went to the Museum Night in Antwerp. We saw The house of Rubens (yes the painter!), The MAS, which is the newest museum in the city, just around the corner of K’s rented room and the Plantyn-Moretus museum, where they had books that were over 600 years old. It was the most amazing evening. And eventhough it was pouring rain we had a lot of fun frolicking around the city. I have some photos to share with you. Most were taken outside because I wasn’t always sure if I was allowed to take pictures inside the museums.
The Plantyn-Moretus was certainly the best museum we visited that night. I loved all the colourfull old books in the libraries and the little copper and metal letters they used for printing the books, in the era before typewriters and printers. When we came out of the museum it was a real monsoon outside so we ran to the nearest cafe and K bought me a cup of hot chocolate milk. What a sweetie!
The view from the top of the MAS. All the things you’ve heard about the Belgian light-erosion are true. They say you could spot our little country from the universe at night, haha ^^ It had cooled down a lot outside so around 11pm we decided to go home. I can’t wait to join this event again next year!
How was your weekend?
