Every day you can join a guided tour given by one of our expert guides. Your guide will take you through the Prison Gate and let you experience the Goals as a prisoner used to do. You will experience the last moments of the De Witt brothers as if you were there yourself and they explain what the torture instruments were used for in the past.

There are guided tours in two languages:

  • Dutch: daily at 2 p.m.
  • English: Wednesdays and weekends at 3 p.m.

Please not that with a ticket for a tour you'll also need a valid ticket for the museum.

We advise you to book your tickets online. This way you can be sure of taking part in a guided tour. Don't forget to book your entrance at the same time. However, you can also buy a ticket at the museum box office if a time slot is not sold out. Reservations by phone are not possible.

Guided tours with your own group

You can also book a group tour of the Prison Gate on request. Great for a team outing or a family day. A tour can be scheduled in consultation at any time during regular opening times. Group bookings are not possible on Sundays and public holidays.
