How to get the most of your school visit to the museum? We look forward to welcoming you in the galleries. To help you to get the most from your visit please read the following information.
Conduct in the museum
The Van Gogh Museum is charged with protecting its unique collection of art, and our museum staff is here to ensure every visitor has a pleasant experience. Please respect the following museum rules:
- Touching the works of art is strictly forbidden
- Eating and drinking is only permitted in the museum restaurant
- Running and shouting are not permitted
- Groups may be asked not to sit on the floor when the museum is busy
Should any visitor break these rules, the Van Gogh Museum reserves the right to ask that visitor to leave.
Large bags, backpacks, umbrellas and other oversized objects are not permitted in the museum. You can store your luggage at the ‘drop & go’ at Central Station or at the luggage storage in the Spuistraat.
Secured cages for coats and bags are available for school groups, and may only be unlocked by you or one of our museum educators.
The entire museum is accessible to wheelchair users. Free wheelchairs are available at the museum entrance.
