Accessibility

Museum Voorlinden is easily accessible for people who use a wheelchair, walker, buggy or scootmobile. The building is mainly on one level and has a special entrance for aids of max. 90 cm wide. You can also borrow a wheelchair. Would you like to come when it is quieter in the museum? Then come on weekdays after 2 pm and outside of school holidays.

In designing our museum and exhibitions, we have taken into account accessibility for everyone as much as possible. Our parking for people with physical disabilities is located at P1, which is closest to the museum. The museum has an adapted toilet with grab rails and an adapted washbasin. If you have any questions or need assistance during your visit, please tell one of our staff members. We are happy to help you!

Wheelchair, rollator, buggy or scootmobile

It is possible to visit the museum with a wheelchair, walker, buggy or mobility scooter, as long as it is not wider than 90 cm. We may ask you to adjust the speed and sound of the aid during your visit if it could disturb other visitors. For the safety of our works of art, balance bikes and hand bikes are not permitted in the museum. Instead, you can use a wheelchair free of charge.

Wheelchair reservation

We want to offer everyone a pleasant museum visit. Do you need a wheelchair for an optimal experience? Then we will be happy to lend you one. Please send an e-mail to info@voorlinden.nl at least two working days in advance. Please mention the date and time of your visit. We will then bring a wheelchair to the car park for you. Please note: we ask a cash deposit of 50 euros.

Bringing an accompanying person

Do you need an escort during your visit to Voorlinden? Your companion can get a free entrance ticket upon presentation of a companion’s card or a signed letter from the doctor that is treating them, stating that they need to be accompanied. Does your guide not have a valid proof of the need for accompaniment? Then we will ask your companion to buy a ticket at the counter.

Bringing a guide dog

Registered guide dogs are of course welcome in the museum and restaurant. You can clearly identify them by making sure they wear a vest or harness bearing the words ‘Do not pet’, ‘Do not distract’ or the logo of the guide dog organisation.

Limited access

Unfortunately, some works of art have limited access: the work Swimming Pool by Leandro Erlich can only be viewed from above with a wheelchair, walker, scootmobile or buggy and Open Ended by Richard Serra can only be viewed from the side; you cannot pass through it. You can enter the room-filling installation Breathing Room with a mobility scooter, wheelchair, rollator or buggy and move around the work, but not through the work. Unfortunately, the tunnel Passage is not accessible by wheelchair, walker, buggy or scooter.
