Museum Night Amsterdam

Nov 04, 2023
7pm until 2am
Around 60 different locations across the city

Museum Night takes place in Amsterdam each November with exciting events and parties at almost 60 locations throughout the city! The ticket gives participants unlimited access all night to museums in Amsterdam. 

Festive night at Amsterdam's museums

With over 30.000 people attending previous editions of 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! 

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Although the participating museums in Amsterdam all offer something special, these lesser-known institutions are stepping up this year and shouldn't be missed!

Here are some examples of what happens at Museum Night:

Het Grachtenhuis

Hop on a boat and (re)discover how special the canals and their houses are. 

Het Scheepvart Museum

Learn all about Dutch maritime history through an interactive evening featuring sights, sounds, tastes and a special work from artists!

Heesterveld Creative Community

Often overlooked, have a peak at Amsterdam Southeast's creative hotspot with DJs, dancing and more!

Amsterdam City Archives

Along with the exhibitions, representatives from AAN will be at the Amsterdam City Archives (Stadsarchief) to show their photos of the Amsterdam nightlife and to award the biggest antagonist in the scene! 

Rembrandt House Museum

The 17th-century home of the famed Dutch painter will be hosting special tours, workshops and a photo booth for visitors to leave their own mark in the pupil's atelier inside Rembrandt House Museum.
