Due to the coronavirus, there are a limited number of visitors who can visit the museum at the same time. We advice you to purchase or reserve an e-ticket with a date and start time of your visit  for every visitor. This way we can spread visitors well over the day and we ensure a pleasant and safe museum visit for everyone.

Read the answers to the frequently asked questions here. Is your question not there? Please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.

I have a discount pass, do I also need an e-ticket with a start time?
Yes, even if you have a discount card such as a Museum card, Rotterdampas, BankGiroLoterij VIP card, Youth Holiday Passport or Museum Friends Pass, we advice you to reserve an e-ticket with date and start time in advance. This is completely free.

Children up to 4 years old can visit the museum for free, do they also need an e-ticket?
Yes, children up to four get free entrance, but they still need a ticket with a starting time. You can book this online for free. 

Can I also buy tickets at the box office in the museum?
There's a limited amount of tickets available at the box office, full = full. We advice you to book online in advance.

I ordered and paid for an e-ticket, but have not received it. What now?
There can be several reasons for this:
- The e-mail with your e-tickets may be in your spam box or junk mail folder. With Gmail, the email is often in the special spam or advertising folder.
- There may be a typing error in, for example, your e-mail address. If you contact us using the form at the bottom of this page, we will correct it and resend the tickets.
- Server problems can cause delays. Check your email after a while.

I am unable to reserve a ticket online.
Check your internet connection and refresh the web page. You can also try again in another browser.

How far in advance can I reserve tickets?
The maximum period for booking tickets in advance is 1.5 months.

Do I have to print my e-ticket?
No that is not necessary. Let's save the forest. E-tickets can be scanned directly from a smartphone. Make sure that the brightness is at maximum, you open the original PDF file (do not take a screenshot) and your battery is charged.

Help! I am more than 15 minutes early or late, now what?
Your e-ticket with start time is only valid on the indicated date and time as stated on the ticket. If you arrive too early or too late, we cannot guarantee that you can enter (immediately).

Do I still have to go to the checkout with my e-ticket?
Yes, your e-ticket plus any discount card must be checked for validity at the checkout. You will then receive a museum entrance ticket, which gives you access to the exhibitions, jetty, ships and cranes in the Maritime Museum Harbor. You also need this admission ticket to be able to play interactive games in the museum.

How can I take advantage of the 20% discount on the APCOA parking garage (Hartmansstraat 35 Rotterdam) with my e-ticket?
For this you need the parking ticket, which you can get as soon as you enter the parking garage. So do not choose the option to pay directly with your bank card, then we can not offer a discount. Show your parking ticket on arrival at the Maritime Museum, in combination with your e-ticket for a stamp on your parking ticket, which gives you a 20% discount at the checkout in the garage.

I have lost my e-ticket. What now?
We have your reservation and contact details in our system. Please contact us in advance at tel: 010-413 26 80.

I have bought e-tickets but want to cancel this purchase, is that possible?
We do not refund money on e-tickets.

I have e-tickets, but want to come at a different date or time. Is that possible?
It is possible to rebook tickets to another date and time up to 48 hours prior to your visit, if available. Please fill in the contact form>
