Guided tours

From 1 June we are allowed to reopen the doors of the Prison Gate Museum to the public. Guided tours and group visits are unfortunately not yet possible in the short term. In the meantime you are more than welcome to discover the age-old cell complex by yourself with an audio tour. Also, discover our exhibition sites where the medieval court was housed.

The audio tour is available in Dutch, English and Japanese. We offer free booklets with the tour information in various languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese and Russian.
