Guided Tours

To enjoy the exhibitions in Bozar to the full, you've come to the right place.

We've put together a fascinating tour that will sharpen your knowledge and make your visit an unforgettable experience. In the run-up to new exhibitions, the curators give specific training to our guides. Our guides will then help you interpret the art and encourage you to look at the works from an original point of view. In addition, the tour is also tailored to your specific needs. Our team of guides will respond to the particular expectations and will answer questions asked by the participants in the tour as best they can. You can put together your own group or join a tour as an individual visitor. Discover the numerous options below.

From 8 October 2021 (opening of the David Hockney exhibition), guided tours are permitted for groups of up to 10 people and by prior arrangement. Groups of 10 or more are eligible for a group discount (more information on the rates and discounts page).

You do not need a Covid Safe Ticket for a guided tour. Wearing a mouth mask and keeping your distance is still mandatory in the building and exhibitions. Read all tips to visit our exhibitions in full safety on this page

To ensure the comfort and safety of visitors, we limit the number of groups in the exhibitions.

An introduction before entering the expo halls is possible, however.  
Please respect the maximum number of people indicated for each room.

Changes or cancellations must be requested at least three weeks in advance by sending an e-mail to groups@bozar.be. 

Cancellation due to coronavirus: if the tour cannot take place due to the absence of the guide or due to the cancellation of the event, the tour will be reimbursed. 

Our freelance guides will keep the reserved timeslot free in their diary for your group. If the visit is cancelled late, they may still charge for the visit. So please move or cancel your visit at least three weeks in advance so that we do not have to charge unnecessarily. We request that groups without a guide cancel at least two weeks in advance, so that we can give the opportunity to other groups to come at that time.
