Frequently asked questions

Voorlinden reopens on 5 June 2021

Is Voorlinden open?
Museum Voorlinden is open again on 5 June 2021. We have incorporated measures to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Tickets can therefore only be ordered online. We use time slots to disperse visitors. We ask all visitors to keep 1.5 meters distance and it is mandatory to wear a face mask. We ask you to move around the museum with a group of up to 4 people, excluding children up to 12 years of age. We ask families or households to stay together.

What measures will Voorlinden take to make my visit as comfortable as possible?

  • By only selling tickets online, we avoid contact at the box office and in this we way we can also spread the number of visitors.
  • Time slots enable us to control the number of people in the museum. You should register at the entrance of the museum at your chosen time. In case you arrive earlier, do not join the queue until your timeslot begins. This helps to avoid crowds.
  • You can visit the museum with a group of up to 4 adults. There is no restriction on group size for children up to 12 years of age. Are you coming with a group of more than 4 people that does not consist of one household? If so, the group will be split up at the entrance to the museum.
  • It is mandatory to wear a face mask.
  • The museum is cleaned more frequently and intensively. Lockers, keys and toilets are cleaned very regularly. This also applies to door handles, banisters and other contact objects.
  • Only use a locker if necessary. If possible, leave your coat in the car or wear it when in the museum. Small bags may be taken into the museum, backpacks are not allowed.
  • You can clean your hands with hand sanitizers that are provided in the museum entrance.
  • A one-way route runs through the museum. We have organised the museum in such a way that contact with other visitors is kept to a minimum.
  • As always, our Guides & Guards will safeguard the art and provide you with information. They also monitor that the distance of 1.5 metres is complied.
  • It is mandatory to use a shopping basket in the museum shop.
  • The artwork Skyspace by James Turrell is currently not open to visitors because it is not possible to comply with the 1.5 metres measures.
  • If you have a cough or cold, stay at home. You can change your tickets to another day free of charge.

These may be taken off as soon as you take your seat at your table.
We have also set up a safari tent on the estate where you can get coffee, tea, soft drinks and sandwiches to go.
Both our restaurant and the safari tent are cash free. You can only pay by card.

Can I visit sculpture garden Clingenbosch?
Unfortunately it is not possible to visit sculpture garden Clingenbosch as we cannot guarantee correct implementation of the government guidelines during these tours. Visitors who have already booked a ticket for the sculpture garden will be informed about the return of their money as soon as possible.

Wearing a face mask is mandatory inside the museum and in our restaurant.

You can visit the museum with a group of up to 4 adults. There is no restriction on group size for children up to 12 years of age. Are you coming with a group of more than 4 people that does not consist of one household? If so, the group will be split up at the entrance to the museum.

Can I leave the museum during my visit, for example for lunch?

Is the Museumcard valid at museum Voorlinden?
The Museumcard is not valid. Museum Voorlinden runs entirely on the incomes from ticket sales, the restaurant and the museum shop. The museum does not receive any form of subsidy. We want to offer our visitors a high-quality international exhibition programme. In order to be able to finance this, we need the full entrance fees. We cannot join the Museumkaart Foundation because in that case we would receive a too limited share of the ticket fees through this foundation.

Who looks after the canaries in Carsten Höller’s work Singing Canaries Mobile (2009)?
To take good care of the canaries, a special care team is trained to look after them every day. They get new food, clean drinking water and their cages are cleaned on a daily basis. In the evening, after closing time, the lights in the room are turned off so that the canaries can rest. We have regular contact with the breeder who checks that the birds are healthy.
