If you have visited the Museum, do not forget to visit the gardens! They are very worthwhile.

Do you buy a ticket in advance?
The Museum Houses work with time slots. You choose a day and time and know that you are never in front of a closed door. We can also ensure that it does not get too crowded in our Museum Houses and you can therefore look around quietly. Reserve a time slot with the Buy Tickets button.

The tickets for buildings of Museumhuis Verdieping are €4,-. Children under the 12, Housemates and Friends Lottery VIP-CARD holders (1 VIP CARD = free entrance for 4 people) and visitors with a Rembrandt card can enter for free. The promotion with the Friends Lottery runs until October 3rd.
