A regular ticket for the LAM museum costs 7.50 euros, for a child even only 5 euros. That is considerably lower than in other museums. The LAM museum originates from the VandenBroek Foundation. This foundation would like to pass on the joy of art. Thanks to the foundation’s mission, we can keep admission prices low. This makes the museum accessible to a wide audience. There is even the possibility to book a sponsored ticket. With a sponsored ticket, you visit the museum free of charge.

The LAM museum is located on the Keukenhof Estate in Lisse, across the street from the world-famous Keukenhof flower exhibition. We are good neighbors, but we have nothing to do with each other in terms of content. While Keukenhof receives 1.4 million visitors in a short time, we are open all year round for a limited number of visitors. With the limited capacity, we can provide a lot of personal attention. The LAM museum and Keukenhof Castle Estate have a separate parking lot where you can park for free.

What’s there

to see?

The LAM museum’s collection includes 3D images, art installations, paintings, sound art and digital art. That sounds like a lot (it is!). But there’s method in the madness: each work focuses on food, drink or shopping. Did we mention the LAM museum has the world’s largest collection of food art?

Snack happiness at the estate

In September 2022, irresistible XXL French fries trays from theater company Tryater stood around the LAM museum. The fries were left out so you could relax in them.


Candy Floss Workshop

During the May holidays of 2023, the LAM museum was briefly the studio of cotton candy artist Martijntje Cornelia. Together with visitors she worked on a life-size self-portrait, of course made of cotton candy.

The LAM museum building itself

is arguably part of the collection

Some visitors say it’s the best work of art at the LAM museum. Designed by Arie Korbee, the raised museum looks right at home in the canopy.

Goed museum van 'Dirk' over.... (ik zal het niet verklappen) past ook niet in... de stijl van het museum. Geen infobordjes aan de muren, maar met de aardige kijkcoaches kom je een eind. Start met de lift omhoog naar de derde etage en loop rustig terug. Prima.Er is geen horeca. Maar vlakbij is er het cafetaria van kasteel Keukenhof.read more

Geweldig leuk museum! Geen hoogdraverij, maar aansprekende eigentijdse... kunstwerken die je verrassen en intrigeren. Prima app om meer te weten te komen over de kunstwerken. Maar nog leuker is het om in gesprek te raken met de verschillende enthousiaste medewerkers die overal rondlopen. Als je de tijd hebt kun je hier makkelijk 1 a 2 uur rondbrengen. Het is een prachtig gebouw in een mooie groene setting waar je leuk kunt wandelen.read more

Het LAMmuseum is een verborgen parel! Wat een prachtige collectie in een licht... modern gebouw op een geweldig mooi landgoed. Een warm welkom bij binnenkomst en je word in iedere zaal vriendelijk en op verfrissende wijze te woord gestaan door de Kijkcoaches. Hier gaat het om anders en écht kijken. Wat doet de kunst met mij? Dat levert interessante en inspirerende gesprekken op! Een aanrader voor jong en oud!read more

Het is een fantastisch museum. De medewerkers doen hun best om met jou de... kunst te beleven. We hadden inspirerende gesprekken over kunst. Je voelt je welkom.De kunst is van hoge kwaliteit, zeer goede kunstwerken soms van belangrijke kunstenaars. De keuze van het werk heeft als thema voedsel of de consumptiemaatschappij. Het is toegankelijke kunst, die je toch aan het denken zet. Anders doen de medewerkers of de interactieve app het wel.Niet twijfelen gewoon gaan ervaren.read more

LAM is a beautiful museum with a wonderful, modern art collection around the... theme of food. The approach of the "spectator coaches" is great, you learn a lot more than usual, and you have to ask the right questions. The visit to LAM takes a good hour and if you add the sculpture garden two hours. We came with a group of 22 and we were split into three groups (maximum of 10 people can enter at a time). Everyone enjoyed it and the rest of the day we kept on talking about what we had seen.read more

Great museum, very friendly and helpful staff. The current expo themed around... food showing all sorts of weird and wonderful items, and being able to sample some of the icecream afterwards was a treat.Set in the beautiful location of Keukenhof Castle, you can go for a walk around the gardens while you are there. I will definitely visit again.read more

Awesome museum! It starts with the beautifully architecture of the building,... but then the central theme of food & consumption, the very visually appealing art and the whole concept of "just walk around and have a chat with us, or we with you" instead of endless signs turns this into an experience that myself and my 4 year old son absolutely loved!read more

Very interesting art. A mixed collection with something to everybody’s liking.... I love the way there are no signs and you have to connect with the museum staff if you want to know more about the art. Like with the artwork, you connect easier with some than others, so also on a social level very interesting. A place for everybody!read more
