National Museum of Playing Cards guided tour

National Museum of the Playing Cards

Our experienced guides will be happy to tell you all about the history of playing cards in Turnhout. You can also opt for a tour around a specific theme:

  • Printing and manufacturing playing cards
  • The card games, history and use of playing cards
  • Turnhout, graphic centre and city of playing cards

A visit to the museum can also be linked to the 'Print at the museum' program, where retired printers demonstrate the old techniques on historical printing presses.

The guided tour takes 1.5 hours, as standard.

How does it work?

Book a guided tour of the Museum of the Playing Cards at least three weeks in advance via Toerisme & UiT. With your reservation, indicate:

  • the desired date
  • the time of the visit
  • the size of your group (maximum 25 people per guide)
  • contact details

The cost per guide is 50 euros, the entrance fee is 3 euros per person (free under 18 years). A one-off administration fee of 5 euros will also be charged.

Toerisme & UiT secures the guide(s) and provides you with a reservation confirmation for the visit. Afterwards you will receive an invoice for the payment of the guide and the administration fee. Then you and your group go to the Museum for the guided tour on the agreed day and time. You pay the entrance fee on location.

In case of cancellation, you must inform Toerisme & UiT in writing at least six calendar days in advance. In the case of late cancellations, you pay the total amount and no cancellation restitution is possible.
