Visit the exhibition

‘Van Eyck. An optical revolution’ will run from 1 February up to and including 30 April 2020. 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. The multilingual audio guide, tailored to children or adults, is included in your ticket.

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. Check the tickets page for more details, or go to the online shop to book a ticket.

Guided tours and nocturnes

You can book a guide several times a day, who will take you on an hour and a half tour of the exhibition. Only guides booked through the museum are permitted, so don’t wait too long to book yor guided tour.

Tuesday and Thursday mornings are reserved for schools, with or without a museum guide. This offer is open to any acknowledged educational institution, both for adult or youth learning.

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! You’ll never get closer to Van Eyck and the art of his time…

Accessible to all

The exhibition is fully accessible to all: individual visitors, groups, schools, families or visitors with a disability. The multilingual audio guide is included in the price and available in adult and children’s versions.
