Informatie & instellingen

1. we maintain a distance of 1.5 metres between households

We know better than anyone how our guests navigate through our museum, and we know how we can spread out our guests. The National Maritime Museum is located in the Zeemagazijn, a large building with a huge surface of over 7,000 m2 open to the public. We will admit a limited number of guests whom we ask to reserve a ticket with a starting time online in advance. A number of small spaces are also not accessible. This way we do as much as possible to make sure everyone has plenty of space for a fun day out.

2. we offer plenty and clear information

We will install central disinfection points and we will clean points of contact, such as door handles, more frequently. If necessary, we will provide personal protective equipment. A number of facilities and exhibitions, such as Dare to Discover - a VR journey, are currently not available due to the stricter hygiene measures.

3. we are taking additional hygiene measures

Going out safely; we do it together. Our guests can trust us to make sure of that. That is why we clearly explain how guests can go out together in a safe fashion. All information is available on our website and on signs in our museum. Our employees will provide assistance. They are continuously trained to offer guests a safe and relaxed day.
