Nothing is what it seems in The Hague during this year’s Museum Night!
Don't miss The Hague Museum Night 2018
During the ninth edition of The Hague Museum Night, the city's museums will open up between 8pm and 1am. Around 40 artistic venues in The Hague will be offering a special night programme inspired by their collections and exhibitions.
The Hague's most eminent art establishments host you on this special night for an exciting programme, including a roller disco, mind-boggling Escher pieces, paper planes and a funky afterparty. Here is a short selection of participating museums, and what they will offer:
Escher’s work plays with illusions. Fishes become birds, large becomes small and dimensions fool the eye. See the weirdest perspectives while enjoying a snack, a drink and good music at the Escher Museum, also known as Escher in het paleis
Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
Gemeentemuseum Den Haag becomes place of Eastern mysticism, with storytellers, Henna artists, eastern traditional dance and of course the art works, pop-up poetry, a photobooth, a cocktail bar and special music performances.
Gevangenpoort, the famous, centuries-old prison gate of The Hague explores the facts and the myths of its incarcerations, letting you test your knowledge in an exciting tour through the cells.
The spirits of Constantijn and Christiaan Huygens come back to life in a tour through the house and the gardens of Huygens Hofwijck.
Royal City Theatre
Head to the theatre for an "Artist Experience" including a silent disco and gin and tonic at the Royal City Theatre, also known as Koninklijke Schouwburg. Tour the 200-year-old building from the artist’s entry and make your way to the stage with some insider’s tales, and listen to music in the foyer.
See a British-themed exhibition from the collection of Queen Elizabeth showing works by the old masters at Mauritshuis. Special activities include a phone booth that lets you step into a virtual Vermeer painting, designing your own Keep Calm bag, a nail studio and an illusionist who shares his tricks.
House of Representatives
See the House of Representatives (Twwede Kamer in Dutch) from the inside! There will be various modern art works in the Statenpassage, and you can see where the Dutch people are represented by the States General.
