Corona measures

Following the Dutch museum protocol for corona measures (Protocol voor veilige en verantwoorde heropening van musea), the Natural History Museum Rotterdam is open to the public. We have taken a number of precautions to ensure a safe museum visit.

Online tickets with timeslot
Online reservation of tickets with a set timeslot is mandatory. This includes tickets that are free, or with a discount, such as those for ICOM members. This ensures it is never too crowded in the museum. At the entrance of each exhibition hall, it is indicated how many people are allowed inside at any one time. Book your tickets here.

Do you show symptoms?
If you show symptoms that may be related to covid 19 you will not be allowed into the museum. 

Set route
There is a mandatory set route with one-way traffic as much as possible. 

Wearing a facemask is mandatory for all visitors and staff in the museum aged 13 years and older.

No wardrobe
There is no wardrobe. Please keep your coat and bag on you. We request you do not bring large bags.

Disinfectant gel is provided at the entrance and exit of the museum and at any interactive elements where visitors can touch objects or screens. The designated area where visitors can consume food or drink brought from home has been closed.

You cannot pay with cash.

No groups
Please do not come as a group composed from different families or households. If you are visiting with other people from the same household, we request you stick together.

1.5 meter
Always maintain a social distance of at least 1.5 meters between you and people that are not in your party.
