Welcome to the Musea Maaseik! Plan your visit.
COVID-19 safety precautions
On 7 March 2022, Belgium’s Consultative Committee adjusted the national COVID barometer to code yellow. The Covid Safe Ticket is no longer mandatory and face masks are also no longer required, although still recommended. From now on, advance bookings and time-slot reservations are no longer needed, and visitors are welcome at all times during opening hours from Tuesday to Sunday! No reservations are required and visitor numbers are no longer limited.
Tickets give admission to the Regional Archaeological Museum (RAM), the Pharmacy Museum and the Treasury of Saint Catherine's Church. In other words, tickets are always for combined admission. Some restrictions may apply in special circumstances, for example if COVID measures are reinstated or if preparations are under way for new exhibitions. Tickets are available only from the museum / tourist office, located at Markt 45 in Maaseik.
