Group visits

Due to our limited space and relatively small exhibition rooms, we cannot cater for groups of any more than 18 visitors, guide included. This applies to both the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. To ensure fair access to the museum for all, it is imperative that all groups book a visiting slot in advance. During peak visiting periods, particularly during special exhibitions, it is strongly recommended to book a morning slot.

Self-led groups, who do not require a guide of the museum for the visit of collections or temporary exhibitions have to pay a speaking-fee of 30€. It can be paid at the entry of the museum, just before the visit.

The following groups are exempted from this fee : school groups, extracurricular groups, art students groups, disabled groups

Activity centres, school groups, associations and adult clubs are all catered for in our programme of activities, available on demand and subject to advance booking.
