Is it your first time visiting the Van Abbemuseum? Or are you visiting (with a class) without having booked a tour? No problem! Every day from 12.00-16.00 a tour guide is available to speak to our visitors. If you let us know your time of visit (with your class), we will make sure that he or she is available to explain something about the Van Abbemuseum.


Preparing for the central written exam (CSE) drawing, handicrafts and textile design can be done in the Van Abbemuseum. The themes The City (for VMBO), So seductive! (havo) and Exemplary (VWO) are in the Van Abbe collection. Special tours and assignments are available for groups of up to 20 people per tour leader. In an hour to 1.5 hours you will practice with the exam material.


Looking for a more active visit to the museum and a different view on art? Then our workshop and activities might be something for you. Customized museum lessons are also an option. Click on VWO, HAVO or VMBO for more possibilities!
