Sensory-friendly Hour

Sensory-friendly Hour

1 February – 31 December 2024
Vleeshal (Map)

For some people, visiting an exhibition can be over-stimulating. This is why Vleeshal organizes a free sensory-friendly hour on the first Wednesday of every month.

On this day, Vleeshal opens earlier to allow a quiet visit. We will ensure that the sound is turned off or kept to a minimum, that there are not too many visitors, and that there is enough space to sit quietly for a while. There will also be guides who can give information if the need arises.

Because we can only allow five people at once in the exhibition space during the sensory-friendly hour, we kindly ask you to fill in this form to ensure a spot.

If you have any questions or if you want to book a spot through email, please feel free to contact us at


Education is of great importance to Vleeshal. Its educational program accompanying the exhibitions is twofold. Firstly, for each child who visits the exhibition there is an educational assignment available at the counter. This assignment is based on the child's perception of the world. Secondly, Vleeshal organizes educational workshops for both primary school and secondary education. This workshop consists of a receptive part in which the schoolchildren or students view and discuss the exhibition, and a reflective part with a processing assignment.
