Centraal Museum Utrecht

Located in a medieval monastery complex in the heart of Utrecht, is the Centraal Museum; an unique, historic location with a contemporary interior where attention is paid to sustainability and comfort. This oldest municipal museum in the Netherlands offers a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere for a large variety of gatherings. Whether it concerns an informal drink, a delicious dinner or an inspiring conference.

From art to culture, everything you want can be discussed at the museum. Furthermore, the space enables you to have an open mind, together with your desired participants. Rather with each other, then against each other. The solution rather than the confrontation. More open-mindedness than opinionated. More tranquility than insurgency.

All the profits made from meetings benefit the museum and contribute to the preservation of cultural heritage in the city of Utrecht. You are most welcome!

COVID Measures

In accordance with the government's COVID measures, valid from November 6, 2021, the Centraal Museum Utrecht will check your corona ticket for access. This also applies to the museum café and terrace.

In the Centraal Museum, the ventilation installations are set up in accordance with the RIVM guidelines and good extraction and supply of fresh air are ensured. It goes without saying that measurements are taken regularly to keep monitoring whether the prescribed amount of fresh air (in m3 per person) is maintained for the safety of visitors and employees. The exhibition spaces have air conditioning systems that ensure a constant temperature of 22 degrees.
