Museum temporarily closed
Due to the current corona measures, the National Museum of Antiquities will be closed until 11 May 2021. We hope to welcome you again soon!
Book your visit from 12 May
It is compulsory to book a time slot for your visit, even if you are in possession of a Dutch Museum card, BankGiro Lottery VIP card or another discount card.
You can book two types of tickets:
- Visit the museum WITHOUT the children’s exhibition In search of Tutankhamun
This regular ticket entitles you to visit the entire museum, with the exception of the children’s exhibition In search of Tutankhamun. You can choose from six different starting times for your visit each day.
- Visit the museum WITH the children’s exhibition In search of Tutankhamun
Do you want to visit the exhibition In search of Tutankhamun with your children or grandchildren? Then book a Tutankhamun-ticket. Don’t wait too long, since there is only limited space and the tickets will sell out quickly. The time slot you choose will be the time at which you start your visit to In search of Tutankhamun. After you have seen the children’s exhibition, you are welcome to explore the rest of the museum.
- Because of the limited space, tickets for the children’s exhibition In search of Tutankhamun will sell out quickly. Book your ticket as soon as possible. TIP: Visit the exhibition on a weekday after children get out of school.
- It is compulsory to book a time slot for your visit, even if you are in possession of a Museum card, BankGiro Lottery VIP card or another discount card.
