Our museum is located in one of the oldest buildings in the city: the City Orphanage (Burgerweeshuis). In the Middle Ages, this was home to the Saint Lucien Monastery, but in 1578 it was converted into the City Orphanage. The product of this rich history is not only a unique atmosphere, but also a complex route, many staircases and various different levels. Our building therefore has different lifts, making most of the rooms accessible for everyone. The museum also has disabled toilets. For reasons relating to safety, it is not possible to visit the museum on a mobility scooter or in an electric wheelchair. The wheelchair stair lift in the entrance area has a maximum capacity of 250 kilos. You may however make use of our loan wheelchair (can be booked by telephone). If you visit the museum with a care assistant, he/she will not be required to pay admission. T 020 5231 822 E
