Beste Jeroen, Er is een beperkte parking voor de deur (en nog een tweede via de Waversesteenweg). En er is ook een betaalparking. vlakbij. Ik kan hier geen links posten blijkbaar, maar alle info en een plannetje vind je op de website van het Museum (onder praktische info).

Er is ook een Villo station vlak voor de deur, wat het museum nog veel gemakkelijker bereikbaar maakt.
