Unfortunately, the Museum of the Canals is still closed. As for many others, these are difficult times for us. Your support is very welcome to guarantee the preservation of the museum. If you want to help us, you can do so in two ways. You can already buy a ticket here and of course you will receive your purchase amount back or you can change your visit date if the lockdown is extended.

We are also classified as a Cultural ANBI (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling). This makes it possible to deduct donations to our foundation from your income tax. Every euro is more than welcome. You can transfer a donation to NL09 INGB 0005 3073 10
