During your visit

Central atrium

The Atrium is the heart and soul of the Museum and serves as a point of reference for visitors. The three floors of galleries arranged around this central area are interconnected by catwalks, glass elevators, and stairs.

Exhibition galleries

The exhibition space comprises a total of 20 galleries.

The Atrium and catwalks connect the different galleries, making it easy to find your way around the Museum and providing different perspectives on the various exhibition spaces. As you enter the Museum, you’ll discover that despite the complex shapes and forms of the exterior, the interior is a clear and orderly space that is quite easy to negotiate.

Non-exhibition areas

Non-exhibition areas include a 300-seat Auditorium, two restaurants, a café, and a store/bookstore.

Please note

During the summer, it is suggested that layered clothing be worn as the temperature inside the Museum is quite cool.


Help us protect the artworks

Do not touch

Do not touch the works of art. They are fragile and can be damaged by the slightest touch. Sharp objects, including pens and other such pointing devices, are not allowed in the galleries. Please keep a safe distance from the works of art.

With Children

If you come to the Museum with children, make sure they are with you at all times. Help us by explaining how important it is not to touch the objects. Do not let them run around the galleries as they may disturb other visitors. Groups of children must not be left unattended.


No large objects are allowed in the galleries: umbrellas, packages, rucksacks or bags over 35 x 35 cm.


No animals are allowed, except for seeing-eye dogs.


No smoking. Food is not allowed in the Museum either.
