The ECC is open for individual visitors every Sunday from 10.00 - 12.00 pm and from 14.00 - 17.00 pm.
On weekdays we can arrange group visits with a minimum of 10 participants.
As the aim of the ECC is to promote the awareness of cartoon art to the general public, a "Pay as you like" policy is applied on the Sunday openings. A donation in relation to your personal budget and your appreciation of the exhibition would be extremely welcome. This method of functioning is only made possible because the ECC is a non profit organisation run 100% by voluntary work.
For group visits there are two options for payment:
- Option A: 3 Euros per person, entrance fee plus introduction.
- Option B: 6 Euros per person, entrance fee plus introduction and the choice of a beverage in the café before, during or after the visit.
