Experience the 'Van Eyck' nocturnes

Be the first to discover 'Van Eyck' during the two early openings, enjoy the 'Evening with Van Eyck' receptions, or be pampered with a walking 'Dinner with Van Eyck'.

Practical information

The exhibition will be open 7 days a week, from 9.30 am until 7 pm. Every Monday, and intermittently on Friday and Saturday, the exhibition is open until 11 pm.

To give everyone the chance to get as close to the master as possible, time slots are used. You buy your ticket for entry at a fixed time. You’re of course free to enjoy the exhibition at your own leisure.

The multilingual audio guide, tailored to children, young adults or adults, is included in your ticket. You can book a guide several times a day, and Tuesday and Thursday mornings are reserved for schools. Or why not reserve a spot at one of the exclusive nocturnes and enjoy the exhibition for four hours, in a more intimate setting and with a reception or walking dinner!
