FAQ Backstage tours

How long will a guided tour take?

A guided tour will take around 1,5 to 2 hours. 

How far is it to walk?

Because of the size of the campus of the Delft University of Technology the tour is about a 3km (around 2 miles) walk. There will also be several stairs at the facilities we will visit. 

Is it possible to join the tour with a wheelchair?

Because of the size of the campus and the lack of elevators in some of the facilities we are unfortunately unable to provide the tours for people whom have trouble walking. 

Who is the target audience?

The guided tours are specially created to be able to target a broad audience. The guides will however adjust the information given based on the background of the visitor to make it as specific as requested and to keep it interesting for all visitors. Because we are visiting numerous research facilities the tour is however less suited for young children (below the age of 10 years old). We recommend for those to visit the Science Centre itself to introduce them to science and technology in a more playful and interactive manner.
