Main building access

The Centraal Museum has a special route for wheelchair users and visitors with prams. You will receive a copy of it from the ticket desk. Curious? You can also go ahead and download (PDF) it.

There are a few doors that are difficult for wheelchair and rollator users. Consequently, you might want to bring a companion when you visit.

The upper chapel and the mezzanine floors in Expo 2 and 3 are only accessible by stairs. The mezzanine floors are not used during every exhibition.

The Centraal Museum has two accessible toilets: next to the cloakroom and next to the auditorium/Expo 2.

Borrow a wheelchair

To protect our valuable collection, mobility scooters are not allowed in the museum. Do you use a mobility scooter? You may borrow a wheelchair from us. The Centraal Museum has three manual wheelchairs.

You may park your mobility scooter in the museum foyer after checking with the host or hostess on duty. You can reserve a loan wheelchair on weekdays between 10am and 5pm via +31 (0)30 236 2349. Although you do not need a wheelchair, is standing for long periods of time difficult? Borrow one of our folding stools.

Free admission for companion

Visitors who find it difficult to go the museum on their own may bring a companion. Admission is free for this companion. A companion ticket is only available at the Centraal Museum ticket desk. Please report to one of the hosts or hostesses in the foyer upon arrival. He or she will be happy to help you.

Assistance dogs

The museum is accessible to visitors with an assistance dog provided the dog has a harness.

At the moment, there are no special facilities for blind and visually impaired visitors.
