Visit the OPCW

The OPCW welcomes visitor groups to its headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about OPCW’s mission and work, visit the executive council chambers and view the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the OPCW in 2013 for its efforts to eliminate chemical weapons. 

OPCW staff members provide presentations to visitors from around the world, including students, educators, professionals, lawyers, and judges. Presentations can be tailored to specific areas of interest, and subject to availability, can be provided in one of the six official languages of the Organisation: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish, or Russian. 

Public Presentation Schedule

All groups are encouraged to attend one of the scheduled presentations. Any presentation topics that fall outside of general or legal presentations can be requested through the External Relations Division.
