English version: Visitors from abroad

Opening times

In line with the Corona virus measures, every visitor is required to reserve a ticket for a specific date and time. Futher, the number of visitors is strictly limited due to the restricted space in the museum .

The historic Coopmanshuys and the exhibition hall in the City Hall are open (subject to change) from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Unforutnately we currently don’t have enough volunteers to guarantee that the museum can always be open and ask for your understanding and patience.
In connection with the measures regarding the Coronavirus, we are obliged to take the following measures:

  • We respect the 1.5 m social distancing rule
  • Face masks which cover both mouth and nose are mandatory
  • We only accept contactless payment
  • Visitors are only permitted to visit the museum if they do not have any of the recognised symptoms of the Corona virus
  • The number of visitors is restricted; a reservation and registration are therefore mandatory. You can reserve a time slot at the museum. If the maximum number of visitors has not yet been reached, the reservation can also be used immediately

According to the RIVM’s guidelines, we are obliged to record certain information and retain this for a period of 14 days. We ask for:

* Your name

* Your phone number and postcode / address

* The number of visitors and households in the group

* The date and time of your visit

For the safety of every visitor and of our volunteers, we have also implemented a number of other measures which can be seen in the museum. We hope to see you again as soon as possible and look forward to seeing you!

Our organisation is run entirely by volunteers
