Visit a depot space

Every hour, three boarding tours are offered. English tours are available twice a day. Specially trained depot guides take you through the depot in half an hour, tell you about the building and take you to visit one of the depot compartments.

You can only register for this tour after access to the depot, at the information desk in the entrance area. Further directions for the visit will be given at the information desk. In any case, we ask visitors not to bring bags. These are not allowed in a depot compartment. 

In this first phase of opening the depot, we are working hard to offer everyone a pleasant visit, but we are also experiencing the optimal number of boarding tours. 

Guided Tour

During a guided tour you visit different workspaces, you can see the artworks (even) closer and you hear more about the building, the management and preservation of a collection. Book a time slot for a group tour (per group of up to 13 people). Please note: a group tour does not include an entrance ticket. This must be purchased in addition to the group ticket.
