PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES SURROUNDING THE CORONAVIRUS

The Van Abbemuseum is open to the public. We do everything we can to ensure a safe and pleasant visit. Below you’ll find an overview of al the precautionary measures. Make sure to read them carefully before your visit.

SAFETY

  • Are you experiencing any symptoms? Make sure to stay at home. These symptoms include: a cold, runny nose, sore throat, mild cough, high temperature or a fever (above 38 degrees Celsius) and/or tightness of the chest.
  • Tickets are sold at the box office, but due to the limited visitor capacity in the museum, we recommend that you book an online ticket with a time slot in advance. This way you’ll ensure that you’ll be able to enter the museum at the desired time. By booking in advance, we can also provide you with (practical) information in advance. Online tickets are available on vanabbemuseum.nl/tickets.
  • To avoid crowds, we allow a maximum of 8 visitors per room, unless stated otherwise.
  • To ensure a distance of 1.5 meters, a compulsory walking route has been indicated in several places in the museum.
  • The entrance and exit of the museum are currently separated. The entrance is located at Bilderdijklaan 10, the exit is located at Stratumsedijk 2.
  • Group tours and activities will not take place for the time being. However, there is a Cicerone available, who will guide the visitors along the exhibitions using interesting back stories (daily from noon to 4 pm).
  • Always follow the directions of museum employees.

HYGIENE

  • A disinfectant for your hands is available in various places in the museum.
  • Latex-free gloves will be provided when necessary (e.g. for touching tactile objects in the museum).
  • There is a small wardrobe (free lockers), but we ask you to use it as little as possible. Feel free to bring coats and small bags (smaller than A3 paper size) into the museum.
  • The museum will be thoroughly cleaned during the day. Extra attention is paid to door handles, banisters, knobs and toilets.
