Directions public transport to Van Abbemuseum
Take bus 17 from Eindhoven Central Station and exit at bus stop Stadhuisplein. Cross the bicycle path and walk with the direction of the bus to the left.

When you've crossed the street, cross the bicycle path and walk onto the sidewalk. Right ahead of you is a low brick wall. Follow this wall for a few metres in the direction of the turn to the right until there's a broad groove in the pavement with two little poles in the middle. Walk this path for several metres and go to the right. Walk the stairs with 10 steps. Walk another few steps ahead and you'll be in front of the main entrance of the museum.
Please note: the traffic lights in front of the Van Abbemuseum do not have ticking noises to help the visually impaired.
