School Visits

Yes, you can book an independent group visit. Independent group visits are possible on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on the time slots that we do not offer to other groups. The time slots appear automatically as available in the booking system when we close the bookings for the education programs. This always happens on the first day of the month. So, starting from the first of October, you can book an independent group visit on Tuesdays and Thursdays in November for the available time slots. You can book independent group visits – providing there’s availability – 24 hours before your visit.

In case of a delay, we kindly ask you to contact us directly. In this way, we can update all involved parties. The Stedelijk Museum is available during office hours through the phone number: 020-5732911. Unfortunately, the tour cannot be extended in case of a delay.

You can meet up with your group at the following meeting points in the museum: 

Under the stairs in Stedelijk Base (ground floor / -1) 

At the artwork Woven Into The Fabric by Petra Blaisse and Desso, located in the entrance hall 

At the Tajiri artwork (the sculpture with the big ‘knot’ next to the museum shop) 

At the Barbara Kruger artwork (1st floor) 

At the Paulus Potter entrance (tbc) 

You can sign in your group approximately 10 minutes before the start of your visit, at the groupsentree at the Paulus Potterstraat. You can make use of the groups wardrobe there (if there’s enough space).  

The Museumpleinbus brings groups of schools from Primary Schools for free, safe and fast to the Stedelijk Museum. The Museumpleinbus is meant for pupils from group 6, 7 and 8 that booked the program De Stijl and for primary schools that are located in a radius of 60 kilometers starting from the ring A10.  

You can cancel or reschedule a tour from the first day of the previous month of the booking. For example, when you’ve booked your tour for the 14th of June, you can cancel or reschedule this until the first of May.  

An abbreviated tour is possible, but you always pay for 1,5 hours. In case you want to book an abbreviated tour, you always go through the booking process first. Send an email after that to to tell your preferred start- and end time.
