Stampe & Vertongen Museum

The Stampe & Vertongen Museum pays tribute to the pioneers Jean Stampe and Maurice Vertongen who started their flying school and aircraft factory at Antwerp airport back in 1923. They joined forces with Jan Olieslagers - the Antwerp Devil - to promote the airport.

The museum, founded by Karel Bos and Danny Cabooter, is run on a voluntary basis. A crew of volunteers is responsible for the maintenance of the museum, its collection and aircraft, but also for receiving and guiding the public and answering their questions.

The museum consists of a statics section and a flying part.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
