Visitor regulations

  • Bags under A4 in size may be brought into the exhibition spaces if controlled by security staff. If you do not wish for the bag to be controlled, or if it is larger than A4 in size, it must be placed in the lockers in the cloakrooms on floor -1. The same applies to umbrellas, selfie sticks and similar objects.
  • Jackets must also be placed in the lockers.
  • Liquids and food may not be brought into the exhibition spaces. Refreshments can be bought and enjoyed in the Lounge on floor 2, in addition to the cafe on floor 1.
  • E-bike batteries may not be brought into the museum due to the fire safety risk of lithium-ion batteries.
  • You can use your own stroller in the museum, but strollers larger than 100 cm long and 75 cm wide must be parked in the wardrobe. You may be asked to switch to one of the museum's rental strollers. Ask a museum host for assistance. Due to security reasons, the contents of bags and strollers may also be checked by security staff.
  • You may not touch the art unless permission is given. Markers in front of the artworks help you keep a proper distance.
