Adjustments InScience following corona measures

Tonight at 19:00, the government announced new measures to contain the impact of the coronavirus. These stricter measures have no direct impact on the continuity of InScience. Nevertheless, the InScience organization has decided to make adjustments to the programming.

The above means that we cancel all side programming for Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November. However, we will continue to show all films and the exhibition will also remain open in the Mariënburgkapel. All ticket buyers will be notified shortly.

You can visit a film at InScience in the same way as in the past few days. So with a valid Corona ticket (CTB). In addition, we offer the possibility to watch films online. We would also like to point out that the café in LUX closes at 20:00. However, you can get a takeaway drink and take it to the film.
