We want as many people as possible to enjoy our museums and their extraordinary collections. At the same time, we want to protect these valuable collections as best we can. That’s why we ask you to observe a number of house rules.
- You can take photos and make videos in the museum as long as they are for personal, non-commercial use only. The use of flash, tripods and selfie sticks is not permitted.

- Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
- Your visit to and in the museum buildings is at your own expense and risk.
- Security guards are permitted to carry out checks of your bag(s) and/or property.
The following is not permitted:
