Getting here

The best museum for inquisitive minds is located in Kerkrade, in the southern part of the province of Limburg. Discovery Museum can be reached comfortably by car or train.

By train

The Kerkrade-Centrum railway station is located very close to the museum and its main entrance. Travelling by train is environment-friendly and therefore the perfect form of transport for a visit to Discovery Museum. Also visit to schedule your trip by train.

By car

Enter Museumplein 2, Kerkrade into your navigation system or follow the signs ‘Discovery Museum’ once you have left the motorway. Free car park at the P+R site. Cross the platform of the railway station to get to the main entrance of the museum.


Discovery Museum is open for all inquisitive minds, including visitors with physical, sensorial, mental and/or intellectual impairments. Visitors in wheelchairs have unobstructed access to the various buildings, where they will also find a disabled toilet and a number of elevators. Admission is free for essential carers (they are requested to present a public transport escort card). Sorry, pets must stay outside, registered service dogs on a leash are welcome. There is a number of disabled parking spaces at the P+R site.
