We expect some exhibitions to be very popular and want to provide a good experience for everyone. That is why there are only tickets with start time for these exhibitions. Your start time indicates when you can enter the exhibition. Then you can stay as long as you want. You can also visit the rest of the museum outside your time slot.

Some exhibitions are extra costly for the museum. Therefore, a surcharge is necessary. You will only have to pay this surcharge once. You will receive a voucher/sticker with the surcharge. If you visit the museum again during this period, you can bring the voucher/sticker, and you won't have to pay the surcharge again.

Marina Abramović

It is an exhibition of the work of Marina Abramović, she is not present in person. Marina Abramović does appear in many works in the exhibition. She herself will be present only during the opening, which is by invitation only. The exhibition includes many performances that she has performed in the past. They will now be performed by performers she has trained.

This is the largest retrospective of Marina Abramović to date, and a unique moment to see so much of her work. It is a costly exhibition for the museum, also because of the daily live performances the exhibition offers. Therefore, a surcharge is necessary. You will only have to pay this surcharge once. You will receive a voucher/sticker with the surcharge. If you visit the museum again during this period, you can bring the voucher/sticker, and you won't have to pay the surcharge again.

In principle, yes, although there are exemptions. The surcharge of 10 euro is required for adults and for visitors with cards like the Museumkaart, I Amsterdam City Card and GoCity Pass. Students and holders of the CJP-card pay half of the surcharge: 5 euro. The surcharge is not required for visitors under 19, holders of the Stadspas, Friends and Members of the Stedelijk, and a number of other cards. This also goes for a visitor that accompanies someone with reduced mobility. You can find the complete overview here.

All visitors are welcome to Marina Abramović's exhibition. This is a unique momentum in which a great part of her oeuvre and performances have been brought together that have never been shown in this way before. We expect the exhibition to be very popular and want to provide a good experience for everyone. That is why there are only tickets with time slots for this exhibition. Your time slot indicates when you can enter the exhibition. Then you can stay as long as you want. You can also visit the rest of the museum outside your time slot.
