Accessibility

By and for everyone

Brabant hospitality is in our genes. We do our utmost to make your visit as enjoyable and straightforward as possible. You'll find lots of practical information about our museum's accessibility here. Got a question or a tip? Get in touch at info@hnbm.nl or speak to a member of the museum staff during your visit. We'll be happy to help!

WHEELCHAIRS, WHEELED WALKERS AND MOBILITY SCOOTERS

If you’re visiting the museum in a wheelchair or with a wheeled walker, use the main entrance on Verwersstraat. The information desk has been lowered and all the chip & PIN devices have long cables for easy accessibility. Unfortunately, it is not possible to visit the museum on a mobility scooter. However, you can borrow aids such as a wheelchair or walking stick free of charge.

PERSONAL COMPANION

Visitors with a disability can bring a companion free of charge. To do this, go to the helpdesk. If you're buying tickets in advance in the online ticket shop, select Free admission in combination with another valid admission ticket. Registered guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome in Het Noordbrabants Museum.

TIPS FOR A RELAXED VISIT TO THE MUSEUM

It is hard to predict busy times at the museum, as this depends on a number of factors, such as temporary exhibitions, the day of the week, and the time. Our tip for a calm and relaxed museum visit: avoid weekends and holiday periods. It is much quieter on weekdays, particularly after 3 pm. Good news! Behind the scenes, we're working on reduced sensory stimulus museum visits. During this special session, a limited number of visitors will have access to the museum, and the lights will be dimmed and sounds muted. Keep an eye on the website for more information.

PARKING

There are a number of accessible parking spaces in the vicinity, including one in front of the entrance on Verwersstraat and a few on Parade. These parking spaces cannot be reserved. NB: parking in the streets around the museum is for permit-holders only.

OTHER FACILITIES

Our lifts give access to all the museum's rooms for wheelchairs and wheeled walkers. There are also accessible toilets on the ground floor of the museum. These facilities are unsupervised.

MUSEUMPLUSBUS

Want to visit us, but unable to do so independently? Het Noordbrabants Museum has teamed up with MuseumPlusBus. MuseumPlusBus – an initiative involving 14 museums and the VriendenLoterij lottery – transports a group of senior citizens to one of the participating museums every day. The museum provides a full day package for participants. To find out more or register a group of elderly people, check out the website of MuseumPlusBus.

THE MUSEUM AT HOME

If you can't come to us, then we will come to you! With our video tour, you can take a virtual tour of our museum at home, from your own armchair. Theatre director and art lover Lucas De Man takes you on a tour of discovery of the museum, talking to our experts along the way. You are assured of a warm welcome from our host, a stroll around the Palace garden and a wealth of information about old masters and new names. It’s like being there in person! Take the tour on your desktop, laptop or iPad for the best experience.

Our pop-up exhibition in residential care homes in Brabant demonstrated the wonderfully uplifting power of art. With residents unable to go outside during the first wave of Covid, we teamed up with Club Goud and development partner Future Talent Factory to bring our art to them. This pop-up exhibition of life-size replicas enabled residents to safely enjoy art.
