Free, the cloakroom on the Upper Garden (JH) level allows visitors to check their personal affects with the exception of valuable and cumbersome objects, as space allows.


Strollers are welcome in the museum! For easier circulation through the museum, visitors can request access to elevators. Strollers lent by the museum must be requested from the cloakroom personnel; they allow children to have better visibility of the works.


Toilets are found on levels JB, 2 (Collections Floor) and 3 (East and West Mezzanines).
