Dear Visitors,

Until further notice, we are unable to receive groups (this does not apply to those living in the same household).

We ask visitors to keep the 1.5-metre distance as they enter, leave and while they are on museum premises. Visitors can only enter wearing a mask (the museum does not provide masks).
