The Stedelijk Museum is accessible to anyone who is curious. The museum provides special facilities and programmes for people with mobility issues. If you have any questions or needs during your visit, speak to a member of our Stedelijk team. We’re happy to help.

Accessing the building

The museum has elevators, wheelchair elevators and wheelchair-accessible restrooms. You use the elevators independently. The map shows where these facilities are. You will recognize them by the wheelchair symbol. 

Do you need help with the elevators? Talk to a staff member. We will be happy to help you.

For persons with dementia and their family members and/or care-givers

The Stedelijk developed the Unforgettable programme for people with dementia and their family members. In this guided tour trained museum guides use art to initiate meaningful conversations. At this time the Stedelijk does not offer the Unforgettable Stedelijk programme. Go to to see which museums you can visit for the Unforgettable programme. This programme is currently only available in Dutch. 

Deaf and hearing-impaired

The Stedelijk offers an average of one guided tour a month in Dutch Sign Language. Tours are given by a deaf museum guide. You can find details and dates about these museum tours in our calendar. We also offer a Dutch Sign Language video tour. Read more about the Stedelijk in Signs programme here
