Tot Zover

Address & route

Everyone will have associations with death, but modern and transparent are maybe not the most obvious. However, the Dutch Funeral Museum – Tot Zover – is housed in a bright modern building with a nice café. It is an extension of the19th century gravedigger house at the entrance of the New Eastern Memorialpark in Amsterdam.
Do feel welcome. We are dying to see you!

Museum Tot Zover is partly accessible to visitors with limited mobility and those accompanying them. Unfortunately the stairlift, with room for a wheelchair which enables passing a small flight of steps in the hallway, is out of order. We would advise to visit the museum with a companion, in reference to the doors between the exhibition spaces. Mobility scooters cannot enter the building.

Guide and service dogs are permitted.
There is a toilet for disabled in the museum cafe.

Disabled parking place is on the premises of the De Nieuwe Ooster Memorial park, 50m from the museum entrance. Ask the porter at the porter's lodge.
