Our new audio tour takes you past over 50 highlights of the museum's collection! The audio guide offers new insights and fun facts and invites you to pause for a while and look at remarkable details in the artworks.

The audio tour allows you to discover new insights and fun facts, and invites you to dwell longer on remarkable details in the works. Each stop on the tour is independent, so you can choose how often you want to stop, listen and look.

The route through the collection also includes several in-depth stops. We use the audioguide as an instrument to create multiperspectivity. We offer more space for other stories and interpretations to emerge alongside certain artworks. This gives us the opportunity to broaden the perspective on our collection and demonstrate that artworks evoke different references, thoughts, memories, and inspirations for everyone.

There are four in-depth themes to explore:

  • Schoonvolk!: Contemporary interpretations of the collection by the museum's youth collective
  • MuSiKa: Musical interpretations by Ehsan Yadollahi and Shalan Alhamwy, in collaboration with De Centrale
  • Audio description: Extensive descriptions for visitors with visual impairments
  • LGBTQ+: Seven regular stops have been replaced with new audio fragments that examine the works from a queer perspective

The audio tour is available in Dutch, French and English and is included in your ticket, just ask for it at the ticket desk! There's a version for adults and a version for families (from 6 years of age), so that even the youngest museum-goer can experience the works of art in MSK for the first time.
