National Art Gallery Rules

Every day, we welcome a large number of visitors who, in their own way, actively discover the architecture, archives, collections, events and programs of the building. To ensure that our visitors can safely participate in such activities, a safe and comprehensive space is needed, focused on art and free from harassment and discrimination. Please share the rules with your students and companions before and during your visit.
