On a rainy day, take the afternoon to explore Antwerp’s cozy Photo Museum. This former film library has been transformed into a small yet exceptional collection of photographs and historic photographic equipment, such as 19th century 3D projectors. Unlike other museums of its kind, there is little explanation of the science of photography- everything is presented as art- no long-winded explanations necessary. The images are profound, heartbreaking, inspiring, and sometimes downright eerie. As well as the permanent collection, two exhibits are always open, one of which is free. A few blocks away from mainstream Antwerp, this museum shows off the city’s sophisticated and introspective character. - Alex Phillips
