Taking your class to the museum

Active, fun, educational guided tours... Creative workshops on books and printing... Activities for students of all ages.

We have something for everybody: a guided tour, a workshop, a printing demonstration, ... it's up to you.

Will you be supervising the visit yourself as the group’s teacher or guide? If so, the visit is completely free of charge.

We also welcome students with a mental or physical disability.

If we don’t yet have a suitable programme for your students, we will be happy to get together with you to work one out that’s tailored to their needs.

Schoolvisit without a guide

Every visitor wants to visit the museum in optimal conditions – – understandably enough. This is why groups and schools reserve in advance. That way, we can coordinate group visits more smoothly.
