Museum Night Amsterdam
Museum Night Amsterdam
Festive night at Amsterdam's museums
With over 30.000 people attending last year's Museum Night, it's obvious that what began as a small initiative has now grown into a staple on the annual event calendar.
A perennial favourite of both young and old, the Museum Night concept invites participating museums and cultural institutions not only to stay open late, but also to offer inspiring activities, parties and more to show a different side of their collections or spaces.
Although they focus on young Amsterdam-dwellers, the entire night is in reality a celebration suitable for all ages. By purchasing a pass, not only can visitors see the permanent collections of the famed Dutch museums, but they will also be treated to special performances, visual arts, lectures, screenings and behind the scenes exclusives.
Getting from place to place is also easy as the ticket offers access to the extended public transportation system for the entire night!
