The Bizarium 'audio guide' offers visitors an extra experience. The Dutch audio guide is voiced by word artist Maud Vanhauwaert; she tells a fascinating story about almost every invention. The operation of the audio guide is contactless (NFC) and very easy to use. The audio guide is offered in 4 languages (NE-DE-FR-EN). All hall texts are also in 4 languages.
CORONA / COVID 19: The audio guide is thoroughly cleaned with professional equipment before and after use, disinfected and individually packed. Thus, the visitors can enjoy their experience in an extremely hygienic manner.
