Guided Tours

The Cobra Museum generally offers two kinds of guided tours. The traditional Art historical guided tour through the collection or the themed exhibition and our unique Slow Art Walk©. Also, once a month there's a Gallery Tour by our artistic team.


Take it Slow, Take a Slow Art Walk©

With some museum guided tours, you race through the history of art and are overwhelmed with so much information that it makes your head spin. This isn’t the case with the unique Slow Art Walk© from the Cobra Museum. Together with the participants we stroll peacefully along only a few of the works in the exhibition. We do not tell you too much, but instead pose questions. What do you actually see if you’re willing to really look without prior knowledge? Take a long look. An intense look. What do you see and what do your fellow ‘Slow Art Walkers’ see? Under the guidance of a specially trained ‘Visible Thinking’ tour guide, we discuss the works and if necessary we talk for a bit more afterwards while enjoying a glass of wine.


A customised Slow Art Walk with your own group

Tour duration: 1 hour, excluding talk afterwards
Cost: €90 per tour and €12 admission p.p. (free with Museum card)

The Art Historial Guided Tour

Guided tours through collection or through the themed exhibition for groups

The Cobra Museum’s experienced museum instructors are happy to guide you and your group through the museum. You can choose to view only the display of the permanent collection or to only visit a temporary exhibition. Of course you can also have a guided tour of the entire museum! Get to know the spontaneous, inventive and imaginative art of CoBrA and immerse yourself in post-war painting. Our temporary exhibitions always align with the CoBrA movement while simultaneously forming a new and exciting perspective.

Tour duration: 1 hour
Cost: €90 per tour and €12 admission p.p. (free with Museum card)
Maximum number of participants: 20
