Guided tours for people with visual challenges 

The museum regularly holds special guided tours for the visually impaired. These guided tours can also be given on an individual basis.
During these tours some of the sculptures can be touched under supervision. The sculptures on the back terraces and the sculpture group of the Royal Family on the south patio (entrance opposite the museum cinema) may be touched without supervision by all visitors.

Price: €7,50 per person, excluding admission price
Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance.

In 2016, Museum Beelden aan Zee won the RAAK Stimuleringsprijs. Thanks to this prestigious prize, the museum was able to develop an innovative program allowing the blind and visually impaired to visit the collection. 


Guided tours with your own guide

Guided tours may be organised with your own guide. However, due to the large number of external guided tours, our own - well trained and enthousiastic - guides and their groups have been hindered during their tours. 

Hence the following rules: 

We always prioritise museum guided tours.
Should a museum guided tour be held at the same time, you may be asked to start in a different room.
Please announce groups larger than 10 persons (maximum 20 persons a group) two weeks in advance.​
External guided tours can only be held at 10 am and from 3.30 pm. onwards. The costs of private tours starting after 10 am and before 3.30 pm are € 60,- on top of the entrance fee.   
Please respect a maximum of one tour at a time, lasting a maximum of 60 minutes.
Please do not speak too loudly as not to hinder the other visitors.
If your guided tour is unexpectedly cancelled, please inform us by calling 070 3585857 or mailing to
