NATIONAL SCHEEPVAARTMUSEUM Het Steen - National Maritime Museum Review

Wednesday, August 3, 2005
Located on the banks of the River Scheldt, the NATIONAL SCHEEPVAARTMUSEUM or National Maritime Museum, is housed in the old fortification known as the Steen. Inside you will find ship models, maritime paintings, navigation instruments and a whole host of other objects and visual images from the maritimes.
There are impressive models of eighteenth-century ships that sailed to the East Indies, a 400-year old astrolab and glass-encased models of how Antwerp was in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, showing how ships were built then.
Besides the indoor Museum in the Steen, you can also walk around the Maritime Park, where real ships, boats and equipment are on display.
Entrance fee was 5 Euros for Adults.

BEER TASTING Beer Tasting Review

Antwerp is well-known as a great BEER TASTING spot, as there are a lot of different kinds of beer to try.
The Belgians say their beers are the best in the world -- but so say the Dutch and the Germans and I must say our Canadian Beer is pretty darn good too - Molson Canadian eh!
Typical for Antwerp is "Bolleke" ( little bowl ). It's a special bowl-shaped glass filled with the local specialty " De Koninck ".

Address: Bars throughout Antwerp

ANTWERP MINIATUURSTAD Miniatuurstad Review

Wednesday, August 3, 2005
This was one of the places we visited on our tour of Antwerp. It really was very interesting to see a miniature version of the city of Antwerp, especially when they turned on the lights to show the city in all its glory at night.
The buildings were created in exact detail of the original, only on a much smaller scale. The "Stadhuis" was particularly well done.

Entry fee was 5 Euros

Address: Vlaamse Kaai
