maakleerplek aspires to be as public and as accessible as possible given the context of its temporary existence. If you are planning to visit us or you have any questions you would like to see answered ahead of your visit, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 016 27 40 60.

For visitors with reduced mobility, there is a drop-off space right in front of the entrance.
Thanks to a lift, all spaces and floors at the Molens van Orshoven are accessible to all. Various parts of the building are accessible by elevator.

maakleerplek is temporarily housed in a former factory building. Sadly, the silos and the inner court years of the Molens van Orshoven are less well adapted to the needs of visitors with reduced mobility.
