trial opening

ARTIS will open its gates for three days starting Friday, April 16, and participate in the National Government's Testing for Access initiative. ARTIS is pleased that visitors can finally visit the park, microbe museum ARTIS-Micropia and the Planetarium again after a long time.

During these trial days, as a condition of this pilot, ARTIS asks visitors to hand over a negative test certificate obtained through  upon arrival.

ARTIS is primarily an open-air venue and in 2020 has shown that, with all the measures the park has taken, a safe visit to ARTIS is possible. Therefore, everything is geared towards being able to open 'normally' as soon as possible after this pilot, without a mandatory coronation test beforehand. 

Currently, all preparations are being made for this three-day opening. In the coming days, information on ticket sales and protocol will be added to our website.From Monday morning, April 12, at 10:00 am, visitors can reserve a start time.
