The Loodswezen building


The Loodswezen building (Tavernierkaai) is located in the lively neighbourhood of Het Eilandje, close to the MAS museum and the city centre.

The eclectic neo-Renaissance palace was designed by Hendrik Kennes and Ferdinand J.A. Truyman in 1890. Until a few years ago it was used as the base for Antwerp’s pilots, who guided ships safely and smoothly in and out of Antwerp’s port.

After having opened its doors to the public during the first successful edition of AntwerpPhoto in 2018, visitors will be able to discover the Loodswezen building once again, together with the exhibitions 'Anthropocene', Iconobelge II' and 'Land of Ibeji'. The ornate watchtower, the courtyard and the statue of Brabo on the facade are just a few striking features of this building.

Opening hours

Every day, 10:00 - 18:00.
The ticket office closes at 17:30.


DIVA Suikerrui 02

DIVA museum

For its second edition, AntwerpPhoto is adding a special extra location: the DIVA museum. The 19th-century building, located in the Suikerrui in the middle of the historic centre of Antwerp, holds an impressive collection of jewels, diamonds and silver. Exclusively for AntwerpPhoto, the DIVA museum opens one of its exhibition spaces for ‘Europeans’, the touching series by legendary photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Opening hours

Mon - Tue & Thu - Sun, 10:00 to 18:00.
Closed on Wednesdays.

The ticket office closes at 17:30.
