All public spaces in the entrance building and in Jan Hartman's old house are exclusively for rent. For more information, prices and availability, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the limited space in the historical house it is necessary that all groups, including school groups, book in advance. In this way we can spread the number of visitors as much as possible and guarantee your group the best possible visit. Your group can visit the museum with the audio tour.

Another possibility is to book a guided tour. For more information, prices and availability please contact email@example.com.
Because of the many stairs, the museum is not easily accessible for people with mobility problems.
Stiletto heels and walking sticks with a sharp point are not permitted in the museum, as these can damage the original 17th-century floors.
No eating, drinking or smoking is permitted in the museum rooms.
Telephone calls are not allowed in the museum.
Of course, no one is allowed to touch the works of art. However, it often happens that visitors/students point at something with their finger or pen and touch a painting or sculpture. Not everyone is aware that the objects in the museum are 'real' and usually unique.
If students/participants need to answer questions on paper or draw, use writing boards as coasters. These are available at the museum reception desk. It is not allowed to write on tables, showcases or walls.
Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder is not liable for loss, theft or damage to personal property.

The teacher/guide of a group is responsible for the course of the visit and for the behaviour of the pupils/participants. We expect you to provide at least one supervisor for every ten pupils/participants. The supervisor stays with the group during the visit.
Do you want to ensure that the pupils/participants do not cause nuisance to the other visitors? Nuisance is mainly caused by noisiness and running in the museum.
If your group is divided into smaller groups, agree in advance on a joint end time and a meeting place.
