Less mobile visitors

  • Will you be visiting with a wheelchair? Let us know in advance (+32 3 338 44 00) and report it at the ticket counter. A MAS attendant will bring you to the desired storey with the lift.
  • Your companion enters for free.
  • The Boulevard and museum galleries are equipped with benches. Portable folding chairs are available in each museum room. 
  • Our toilet on the ground floor has adapted sanitary fittings.

 People with a visual handicap

  • Your companion enters for free.
  • Guide dogs are welcome in the Boulevard and the museum halls.

Babies and small children
