Can I buy a ticket at the door?

There is no box office at the door. You will see a QR code displayed. If you scan this with your smartphone, you can instantly see if tickets are still available and you can buy them using your mobile phone (pay by Ideal or a credit card). If you need help with this, ask one of our employees to assist you.

I am unable to choose a day and time slot when booking.

Is your desired time slot not available? This could be for one of the following reasons:

  1. The time slot of your choice is sold out, the system always indicates the current availability. We do not have a reserve / waiting list.
  2. We are closed on the day you want to go. For the current opening hours, see the Opening hours page.
  3. The tickets cannot be ordered yet. Due to the corona measures, a limited number of tickets will be released in phases. Now you can book until the end of February 2021.

How do time slots work?

Buy your ticket in advance and choose a time slot. The time slot you choose is your start time, and lasts 15 minutes. Arrive at the entrance to The Art of the Brick during that quarter of an hour. You can then stay in the exhibition for just as long as you like, until we close.

I arrived too early or too late for my time slot.

If you arrive at the start time shown on your ticket, you are guaranteed entry. If you miss your time slot, we will admit you as soon as a later time slot has enough spare capacity. If there is no more capacity that day, we will talk to you about which other day you can return.

I received a gift voucher; how do I now book a ticket?

Do I need to print out my ticket?

No, you don’t need to do that, we scan your ticket on your phone if your screen quality is good enough and set to full brightness. If you have doubts about that working, then print the tickets out before you come here.

Is my annual Museum Ticket valid?

The annual Museum Ticket is not valid for The Art of the Brick. We do not receive any subsidies and depend totally on the income from ticket sales and our exhibition shop.
