Our practical advice in high season

  • Crowds can be very bad during a temporary exhibition. In some cases, you might have to queue for an hour just to get to the ticket desk.
  • We strongly recommend you buy your tickets online- thus skipping the first queue for the ticket desk.
  • Entry C is reserved for those that have bought tickets: skip the whole line!
  • If you’re planning on visiting at a weekend, bear in mind it is quieter in the morning than after midday.
  • The museum is open on public holidays during the high season.
