Virtual tour

Because not everyone is able to visit us in person, we have developed a virtual tour! Now everyone can get a glimpse of a visit to our museum which has been captured through 360 degrees photography. 

Discover the Grail of Amsterdam, our colourful garden filled with wild flowers or take a look at one of our exhibitions. The images on display in the museum are almost all from the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica Collection, the library collection founded more than sixty years ago by Joost Ritman. To discover our virtual tour full screen see below, or click here!

Did this virtual tour give you an appetite to discover more? Please view our opening hours and rules for a safe visit during the Covid-19 pandemic here. 

We are open from Wednesday – Saturday between 10.00 – 17.00h. You must now, however, book your ticket online in advance, even if you have an annual pass/Museumkaart/Stadspas/ICOM pass. This way, we can ensure a safe visit in accordance with Government rules. 

Online tickets
For a regular museum visit, you are not obliged to book an online ticket in advance. However, to be ensured of a visit, we do recommend you reserve an online ticket for a specific time slot. You can do so here

A maximum of 30 visitors is allowed in the museum at any time. It may be that you will have to wait a little before you can actually enter the museum, due to previous visits that are being concluded. In case it’s very busy, tickets are valid for 3 hours at most. 

What to bring with you? A headset and a charged phone or tablet
We have developed an audio tour taking you past a number of the museum’s highlights. You can listen to the audio tour on your mobile phone or tablet (so make sure they are sufficiently charged!) and using your own headset or earbuds. We do not sell earbuds ourselves. Should you not have a phone or a tablet, we have a limited number of iPads you can borrow.
