Museum Meermanno is accessible to wheelchair users and other visitors who need to avoid stairs. A basic wheelchair which needs to be pushed can be reserved via +31 (0)70-3462700.


The reading room is open by appointment only. In principle, it possible to consult all works in the collection in the reading room upon request. In a small number of cases (i.e. for extremely valuable or fragile works), we require a written request which will be evaluated by the curator.

Because the collection is stored at another location, there is no guarantee that a desired item can be made available immediately. You are therefore requested to submit a list of the works you wish to consult to the library department at least a week in advance of your visit. The reading room can be visited Tuesday through Friday, 11:00 - 12:30 and 13:00 – 16:45. To make an appointment and submit a list of the works you wish to consult, please contact us via +31 (0)70-3462700 or
