The very popular Museum Weekend will be taking place again at locations all over the Netherlands during the first weekend of April!
Museum Weekend Netherlands 2014
Now in its 33rd edition, the Museum Weekend is a festive event that sees hundreds of museums throughout the Netherlands opening to the public free of charge or with large discounts.
Organised by Stichting Museumkaart, the goal of this national event is to encourage visitors to rediscover the rich collections and diversity of the museums in the Netherlands.
Along with discounted entries to the permanent collections, many of the museums will additionally host special events, activities or workshops.
The theme of this year's Museum Weekend is Doe een museum ("Do a museum") and looks to inspire residents and tourists to get out and participate by visiting a museum or institution that they love or explore one they've never been to.
