Continue straight on into Breestraat and take the first left into Koornmarkt. The museum is on the left hand side.

Paid car parking is available in the Zuidpoort garage (5 minutes’ walk away), or on the car park on the opposite side of the Koornmarkt (behind building “De Zuster”, 2 minutes’ walk away).


We are currently only open from Tuesday until Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

The number of visitors currently allowed in the museum is strictly limited. The route through the museum is mainly in one direction. In some rooms only a certain number of people are allowed in at once; this is indicated clearly on the rooms concerned.

All contact surfaces in the museum are cleaned regularly (e.g. door handles, WCs, taps, lockers and payment machines). Hand sanitising gel is available around the museum.

Group visits and school visits are unfortunately not possible until further notice.

If you have possible COVID-19 related symptoms, you cannot visit the museum.
