The Biennial of Painting is accessible to a wide audience, making it the ideal cultural excursion or weekend trip for the whole family. The three locations are spread out over a straight line spanning just under 13 kilometres.
One ticket, three museums!
Combi-tickets are available during the Biennial that provide access to all three participating museums. These tickets are valid from 26 June to 2 October 2022 for a one-off visit to the Biennal’s exhibitions at Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, the Museum of Deinze and the Lys Region (mudel) and the Roger Raveel Museum. Not to worry if you cannot visit all the locations on the same day: the ticket remains valid for the entire duration of the exhibition.
Buy your tickets in online or at the reception desk of any of the three participating museums.
