Questions about visiting
We ask our visitors to book a time slot in advance to ensure a spot on the desired day and time.
To be sure of a spot on the desired day and time, we recommend you book a time slot in advance via our online ticketshop. If there are still enough spots available, you can of course also purchase a ticket at our ticket desk.
In the unlikely event that you are late, you can still enter the museum. There is no maximum length of time for your visit to the museum.
We recommend visitors to book a time slot in advance. If you have a ticket without a time slot, select the option 'Other' in our online store. Please make sure to take your e-ticket, regular ticket, or free ticket without the time slot with you to the museum. This is your admission ticket, in combination with the e-ticket for your time slot.
You can purchase an e-ticket at any time before the start of the time slot. You can also purchase an e-ticket at the desk if they are still available. This is often the case. Otherwise, you can purchase one for the next time slot which is no more than 30 minutes later.
Yes, you still need to book a time slot. Please do not forget to bring along your Museum Pass, which must be scanned at the ticket desk.

Questions about the museum
The museum stands on a spot where the city walls and fortifications of the City of Venlo were located over centuries. After the fortifications were demolished in 1870, the site was used as a marshalling yard for private railway companies. The oldest remaining filling station can also be found on the south side of the museum. This Esso filling station was built in 1933. The history of the site was an important source of inspiration for the architect Jeanne Dekkers in the creation of her design for the museum.
The present building of the Limburgs Museum was built in 2000. The entrance area was renovated in 2021 in order to make the museum even more accessible.
