Booking a tour with an expert guide is worth it for groups. You receive even more information about antiquity, top pieces and the museum’s collection during a tour. And you may hear special anecdotes.

You can book a tour for the permanent presentations and temporary exhibitions:

The museum has guides who can give tours in Dutch, English, French or German. A tour takes an hour; the maximum group size is 25. As a group you can also visit the museum with your own guide.

Highlights route

At the museum’s reception desk, you can take a ‘highlights route’. This will show you all the highlights from the entire collection. You get brief information about each object. The highlights route is available English, German, Spanish, French and Italian.
