Food and drinks

In the castle, you'll find our cozy museum café, MIKA.

The menu offers both cold and hot dishes, from soup to pastries. Enjoy the beautiful view on the terrace when the weather is nice.

You're also welcome to picnic in the art park. Just remember to clean up afterward to keep everything tidy.


Visit their website


The main entrance is located at Middelheimlaan 61, but you can enter the museum through 9 different entrances. Signposts in the art park will assist you with orientation. The park map includes both short and long walking loops with all facilities.

Parking spaces
At the main entrance, there are two parking spaces for people with disabilities.


Uneven park terrain
Certain parts of the art park may be less easily accessible due to uneven terrain. Ask at the visitor pavilion for the ideal route for your visit.


Wheelchair rental
Two wheelchairs are available upon request. Please reserve them in advance by calling +32 3 288 33 60 or by email, and we will have them ready for you.


To enter the castle, you need to climb five steps. As a result, the castle (and the museum café on the ground floor) is less accessible for people in wheelchairs.


Opposite the visitor pavilion in the museum heart, you'll find a toilet for visitors with reduced mobility.


Young children and babies
There are changing tables for young children and babies in the museum heart and in the Collection Pavilion.
