The Open Courtyard is the central hall of our monumental building, the Arsenal. Thanks to the spectacular glass roof, the courtyard can be used all year round for events, receptions and dinners. The glass roof gives the courtyard an intimate ambiance. A specially developed floor ensures optimal acoustics for music and presentations.

The Open Courtyard is available after museum closing time at 5:00 PM and depending on the size of the group we can provide a starting time for your event.
