  • Visitors must at all times keep at least 1 meter distance from other people. 
  • The wardrobes are closed. We encourage you to bring only small bags. 
  • Persons arriving in groups should maintain gathered throughout their visit. 
  • Visitors bringing small children are advised to use baby carriers if possible. 
  • Hand sanitizer is available at several locations at the museum.
  • We have removed several points of contact in the museum. 
  • We prefer the use of contactless payment in the museum store.
